Walked halfway across Rome only to discover a closed up shop. Walked halfway across Rome only to discover a closed up shop.

This place has pretty al fresco dining and the food was great - we had the biryani, chicken kebab, paneer sabzi and naan - we asked for it spicy and spicy it was! Attentive service apart, the place is warm, homely, and serves up authentic Indian fare. The kheer was exceptionally good!

Disappointing to see the place empty at 8pm, but I guess that's Italy. We live here in Italy and we CRAVE non-Italian, especially Indian cuisine. We went here after spending a little time walking around the neighboorhood, Trastevere, which is very nice. It's an EXCELLENT location. We loved our meal, the owner/manager was very nice and accomodating to us for... More

We went there on our first night in Rome randomly. Great decision! The setting on the terrace is just lovely. If you're lucky or make reservations you can overlook Tastevere. The staff are very friendly and quick. Our main waiter spoke excellent English and was very attentive. The brought a slightly wrong appetizer, but he immediately noticed and insisied on... More

Wonderful meal on a Saturday night. Pork Vindaloo Chicken Korma Rogan Josh Meat and veg Samosas AND Pappadums - of a quality I have not found anywhere - even though I used to work in Southall in the UK and eat there regularly. Crisp but slightly soft inside - quite remarkable, they are normally too crisp. If you are looking... More

Like most people in Rome for more than 3 days we wanted to find something that would again tantalize the tastebuds. Like we always do we looked on Google and Trip Advisor to see if there was a nice Indian Restaurant around that didn't sound like it was in a shake or would cost the earth. We looked at many... More

The service was excellent and fast. The owner was very efficient even when the restaurant was full. We didn't have to wait long for our food. The food in itself was good based on standards of Indian food available in Rome. The food was only warm when served which was a let down.

As others have indicated in their reviews, this restaurant serves very good Indian food. My husband, our two kids and I had a meal here one evening and got takeaway on another while in Rome and really enjoyed the food. Dining at the restaurant was lovely - sitting out in the courtyard under the trees felt secluded and private but... More
