Good Indian food in Dhaka

They have good indian food served in very basic settings in Dhanmondi area. There are very few or no indian food place around that area other than Gulshan/Banani. Their food tastes good, pricing is also affordable.

Went there last week, enjoyed it so much I am going again tonight. The service is very good and food excellent quality, I recommend the chicken jalfrezi and beef bhuna. But the best thing here is the fantastic santoor special naan, it is a sweet naan a bit like peshwari but better - simply the best naan I have ever... More

Very good for vegetarian and Indian food lovers. Most of the Indian foods are cooked with extra oil and masala here. So you can feel the taste of real Indian mixed with local favor. Desert items are also very good. Main attraction is the location near to Dhanmondi lake. So you can enjoy the foods and gossip with friends and... More

I have been there for single time to attend a seminar. I'm satisfied with their service. The cooking is good but prices are little high. As a whole I like the place.

Been going there for last 12 years with my family on different occasions. Without one or two exception always found the food tasty. The environment is always welcoming. And the best part is, it is always value for money

Part of a big party so we had shared dishes, the roti starter was particularly good. Would go again.

Good food, but not a place to eat to often as it is rich in oil and dishes can be simular to eachother. Location is good to go for a walk in the park after dinner.

This is probably one of the oldest Indian restaurant in the city and over the years has kept it up with the market. The food is still good. If anything the interior which is good but looks older. But this is a total family restaurant with good service and priced reasonably. I cant remember any special dish standout from their... More
