This is the perfect stop for when you need a break from Vietnamese food or when you are craving some quality Indian food. The food is affordable, delicious and the staff is very friendly. Plus you get a 5% discount if you fill out a comment card. The garlic naan is a must.

Amazing food. Nice wine and beer list. Staff were great, constantly keeping our water glasses topped up. After our meal they gave us rice pudding. If you love Indian food and are in HCMC, come here!!

Excellent service, Naan garlic buttered bread really great. Food ok, not great. Chicken cooked a bit tough. If you don't your food cooked spicy please mention to the waiter. Busy place.
