The best Indian food ever!

While we stayed at Sankara hotel for two nights, we went for dinner twice at Hamdi. It was a luxury to have such a delicious Indian food in reasonable price!

We ordered a fruit salad with nuts and honey, and a sandwich chicken and something. The sandwich came on nice bread, the meat was good.

Hamdi is in the city centre so it's a great place to catch up with friends for lunch or coffee.

A must visit if you want to try authentic Indian delicacies. The price is on the higher side but still it's quite crowded. Go for traditional Indian cusine.

Very lively and comfortable ambience filled with locals. Best fruit smoothies I've ever had. Staff was attentive and food better than expected. Would recommend the outdoor seating on the balcony to watch the busy city life pass by below.
