great Indian food

Loved their food. Specially in drinks, "Jira Pani", "Lassi" are unique. The place may not be as modern as it's competitors. May be a bit expensive compare to other restaurants but it was worth it. Would recommend for you all.

Decoration is nice but sitting arrangement is little bit clumsy. you cant sit big group together. But for small group there is... More

Food is good but nothing exciting. Interior is terribly boring - at times to the extent of suffocating.

I really liked that you have several options to opt from the vegetarian Indian food menu. We tried dosa, and special veg thali. Food was tasty and well served. Strongly recommend this restaurant to the people looking for good Indian taste while staying in Dhaka.

My latest visit was with colleagues for a dinner party at their Banani spot. The environment is moderate – not very contemporary like most of the Gulshan-Banani... More

Based on a recommendation from a work colleague we managed to finally locate the restaurant. It apparently had moved from its last location. The new location was fine . Uncrowded is an understatement. Food was ordered and started arriving after some delays in no particular relation to quantity and type of dishes we ordered. In the end the food was... More
