Walked in off the street on Thursday evening at around 7:00pm. The small restaurant was busy with customers.

Having travelled in India and being a lifelong devotee of Indian food, this small Indian restaurant in Xlendi seems, at first sight, to be the most unlikely place for me to eat. However, the food & service was outstanding. We stuck to beef and lamb curries, which come with great nan bread, accompanying sauces and fabulous poppodums. Choose your own... More

My wife and I went to this place October 14. Was fairly busy with takeout orders, not sure if they have a different chef cooking the takeouts, our food was not good at all. All tasted of powdery spices (remember that stale well out of date Schwartz madras curry powder in the cupboard) My recommendation is go buy a jar... More

This is a fabulous restaurant with very caring and attentive staff who succeed in providing an excellent service, we have been coming here since it opened and the quality of the food just gets better and better. The Beef Karahi is my favourite and never disappoints , you can ask for the curries to be made to any strength depending... More

Well, on the plus side, the staff are helpful, enthusiastic and engaging. They certainly are a credit to any restaurant. It all falls apart though in the kitchen. The food bears no relation to what you would naturally expect. Every Indian restaurant on the face of the planet knows that Jalfrezi is a tomato based sauce - everyone that is... More

Abridged: look this is never gonna be Khans or The Bombay Bicycle Club in London. It's Gozo + Curry - do the maths. We eat between 40-50 curries out a year so we feel we can comment. It was okay. Would we go back? Of course - it's Gozo. Warts N All: We've been eating out on Gozo for over... More

The staff were friendly and efficient. And the food was delicious. I had the chicken korma and my mum had the prawn korma. And we shared a garlic naan bread and pilau rice. They give good sized sized portions. We both enjoyed it very much

Having tasted other Indian restaurant the evening did not meet my expactations.. We had chicken tikamasala and lamb pasander with cashew nuts. However the tikamasala was too spicy bordering to bland. The lamb Pasader was good. The starter papadoms was on d house which is a gd idea however the white dip was not good. Some were also offered tea... More
