There were at least 7 different varieties of curries available - fish curry, chicken, and some vegetable (maybe okra) curry, among other types of curry there. All of them are quite tasty. Although being a meat lover that... More

This is the best Indian food I've had. They have dishes from all over the country with so many options! And lots of rice and bread varieties too. The pickle tray and flavours were explained to us also, and the staff were very attentive.

Good Indian restaurant in the crowded backpackers area. Good quality with reasonable price and worth trying in this area, although not exceptional.

That street where this little restaurant is situated looks like the party place for the Saigon City. Food is yummy, prices are good and quite simple interiors.
