The most authentic Indian in Taipei. I have try almost all the Indian restaurants in Taipei. As a Indian I am more choosy about the Indian flavours and the spices. My favourite restaurant for Indian food.

I have eaten Indian in many places outside of India, including some of the finest in London. This place is simply great. It is expensive for Taiwan standards, but it is really worth it. The food is perfect, the restaurant comfortable and the staff offers good service. It is also conveniently located within a few meters of a good department... More

I'm very surprised that Bale Bale has a higher rating than Saffron. I really feel that Saffron is in a league all its own in Taiwan. It's rather expensive but your certainly pay for what you get.

Found a maggot in their rice... All they had to offer was an excuse of how their rice is from India and a piece of plain naan.

Is this a place where millionaires dine out along with their snobby kids? The answer is yes. Is this a place where you get the best Indian food in Taipe / the world / Asia / Northern Hemisphere / within 100 feet of this restaurant? Absolutely, not. The food is really bad, and if you're an Indian looking for authentic... More

Discovered this joint in my trip to Taipei in Dec 2014 and was blown away. Excellent ambiance, great service, amazing food and excellent Ice Cream.. I would recommend this to all expatriates as this is a home away from home meal... I cannot wait for my next business trip to Taipei...

I went there and had an amazing time, the service was excellent, great atmosphere and more importantly awesome food! The chefs and waiters are quite helpful and... More

When we decided to visit Taipei again I found their business card from last time to make the taxi would not get lost. This place would have to serve the best Indian I have ever eaten, it is always freshly cooked and just so tasty and I am happy to report that it hasn't changed since our last visit about... More
