Best Indian in Taiwan by a long shot

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.

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
