Easily the best Indian Food in Sofia

I give it 5 stars because relative to other restaurants in Sofia, it is five stars. And it is certainly the best Indian food in the city. Very good service and very good food. It also has a very relaxing environment.

When I eat at Indian restaurants in foreign countries, often enough I feel that the food is less Indian and more local. Of course, not all chefs can dish up a cuisine as spicy and hot as the Indian food, so I was pleasantly surprised to eat Kohinoor's. We were in a group and after some roaming around we started...

Once again we visit the restaurant and as always the quality of food and service is very high. For me the favorite is Chicken Tandoori, Chicken Andjuna and Pilau rice, Dessert kulfi is very pleasing to the final. Recommend it to anyone who likes Indian cuisine

I visited the restaurant with my husband and friend. The restaurant is quite large with 2 floors and has several rooms. The decor is nice and different in each room. We all enjoyed the food very much - it was very tasty and full of aromas and spices. I can highly recommend the place for all people who enjoy indian... More

Indians --- stay away and avoid... Not the Indian food we typically expect. I ordered Bhindi (Okra) and it was just not palatable. Huzayf

I've been here 3 times now, each time with a different group of friends and everyone has enjoyed the food. There's plenty of choice and all of the dishes I've tried have all been delicious. I'm from the UK and have lived in Dubai so I've eaten a lot of Indian/Pakistani food and this is definitely up there as one... More

I got blinded by the good reviews at tripadvisor, as our experience with the restaurant was not the best one. The food per se was rather bland and was missing the huge variety of Indian spices. The nan we ordered had nothing to do with a nan and was only a thick tortilla. The mixed appetizers were strange as I... More

I've tried better Indian food. Most main dishes taste and look similar. The menu is enormous which always means already prepared dishes. Wouldn't try again.

Been there twice a couple of years ago and it was very delicious. The cuisine is authentic and very nice (could be very spicy too). The prices are bit higher that usual restaurants. The overall experience is very good.

Hard to find Indian restaurants in Bulgaria so really excited to be dinning at the Kohinoor as we are from England live in Bulgaria and visiting Sofia. We may have picked a bad day as the restaurant had been closed over Christmas and reopened the night we visited . With a large menu selection and service that was great friendly... More
