Indian food away from India

We visited this place near colosseum. Food is good and authentic. Taste has Punjabi flavour . Staff is courteous. They made cheese nan for my kids though it wasn't in menu card.

We reached here a family of 2 adults and 2 kids after 7 days of italian food. We were desperate for home fare and they did not disappoint. The hospitality re received despite coming here 15 mins before the kitchen was closing was AMAZING. The dal, butter paneer and chicken tikka was superb. More than the food the welcoming attitude...

Being Pakistani I always crave for traditional food outside home. This restaurant just few blocks away from Colosseum gave such a warm feeling. The hospitality and food both are superb. We really enjoyed the Punjabi food

After being sick of pizza and pasta we looked for something special to eat and we saw this quiet interesting place. Before we were even able to debate weather to go in or not, a handsome man with a pleasant smile invited us in. The atmosphere is authentic and service is efficient. The food is good and so is the...

For food which was the main purpose , the food was one of the worst I have ever had in my life. Everything starting... More

A great experience. Loved the vegetable samosas and veg kofta - the sauce had great flavor. Service was good. One of the best meals in Italy.

We found this place while walking to the colloseum on one of the more busier streets of rome. The food was ok and the service is not the best. It just doesn't have the feel of the other indian restaurants in the area. More cheaper than the other indian restaurants in the area

This restaurant is operated by Punjabi family. Food is nice, warm. People are cordial, helpful. Space is smaller so when a big group comes for food then it is little difficult for movement.

I was with my mom in Rome for 2 days. We were carving to have Indian food when I found this restaurant. The service was awesome and the food was super tasty. It was not costly and its worth whatever you spend. I highly recommend this place to whoever whats to taste an authentic Indian food.

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
