This place has the best Indian food in Vietnam and was also the best I had in South-East Asia. Their rasam was aces and I found myself coming here every day to try out more dishes from the menu. The staff was very genial and the pricing was quite fair too. Highly recommended!

Foodquality was decent/good. Portions were somewhat small. Location is good. Price is good. All in all I surely would go back when I would find myself in the neighborhood, but wouldn't go there only for the restaurant.

Staff was awesome and gave us free water and refilled it all the time. Free rice pudding as dessert. However we struggled to eat the food as the rice was dry and the sauce tasted like sand/dust, which was weird since it said it was their most popular dish.. So, awesome staff, but that doesn't really help when we struggled... More

This purveyor of authentic Indian food has opened an outlet in District 2 meaning that any takeaway orders arrive quicker and fresher to those of us living in District 2. They are mainly set up for takeaway orders although when we turned up there to eat they did have a couple of tables set up and treated us well. There... More

All our dishes were amazing, one of the best Indian restaurant I've been so far. The food was really tasty, spicy but without covering the taste of the food. Good price for quality and quantity.
