As authentic as it can be outside India

This is a very special restaurant in the centre of Kristiansand. We have been there many times with our family and friends. You will notice the ceiling is quite extraordinary and the furniture ok. Service is good, but depends somewhat on the waiter you get. The menu is extensive, and typical Indian... read more

It was a farewell meal with my Noreigian friend and family before we leave Norway to Amsterdam. Step into the entrance and walk down the stair with portraits of beautiful women, next you enter into India. Everything - atmosphere, music, decorations and the smell of spices. Best part was that you get to choose the level of spiciness with your... More

Looks can be deceiving! The same case applied here. The restaurant is very good with such a good interior and layout. One feels the Indian atmosphere. However, the food does not match with the theme. Though I was provided information that the food is authentically Indian, I did not find it convincing. The tasteless flavour of the food disappointed me... More

I ordered murg curry as a take away. The curry was tasteless and seemed to be oily on the top. Rice portion was enough but totally not satisfied with the curry.

Went alone when hungry for dinner. Took Garlic Tikka and Garlic Naan, rice was served as a side anyway. Too much for one but so good, ate too much again.

Hmmm, where to start from, well it's a nice cosy little Indian restaurant, food is average according to what they charge, staff is good, service is little slow, great atmosphere and ambience, in city centre close by all the shops, would recommend only once!

Very good food, tasteful and delicious. Service was exellent. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. This a typically family restaurant owned and runned by indian people. My impression is that they are doing the outmost in order to serve customers in the best way. The location of the restaurant is very central, and easy to get to.

I've been to this place many times, and I enjoy myself every time. They serve great quality and tasty indian food. They don't cut any corners in preparing their dishes, and as all great places - everything on the menu tastes great. The atmosphere is always amazing, and the restaurant smells of fresh and exiting spices. Make sure to order... More
