nice, but no chutney?

Was initially seated by the wall with bench seats and very nice cushions but the manager made us change seats saying they were reserved. Yummy food but was a little disappointed they had no chutney to go with the crisps.

I didn't actually sit down and eat at the restaurant, we ordered and took out. However, you could tell they do pay attention to all the details just by how they present their take-out packaging, everything was presented as if we were eating in the restaurant. We tried three vegetarian dishes and two chicken ones, they were all every tasty,... More

Not much to say about this place except it's some of the best Indian food I've had outside of London or India itself. I need to head up there again sometime soon. Their Palak Paneer is to die for

One of the best Indian restaurant in Taipei. It serves great food, has a classy feel. The only regret - the choices are a bit limited, a longer menu would be better, especially for vegetarian choices.
