Definitely above average. Very good Indian food at the heart of Sofia, vegetarian options were really good, bhindi (okra), palak paneer, pappad, lassi, chutney, steamed rice, teas, kulfi all were very good. Will try it again. Very friendly service. For Indans just to know, the owner is Bulgarian and the chef is Nepali but the taste is Indian. Huzayf

The dishes are not too spicy meaning you can really enjoy the flavour (although they do offer extra spicy dishes if that's what you like!) The lamb was delicious, it melted in my mouth. I also recommend the garlic naan. It was crispy and warm and I ate almost... More

This is one of the best Indian restaurant I prefer to go when I am in Sofia for my business. Being an Indian I miss the authentic taste and this is the place where I get original taste. The spices that they use looks like they import from India because I could not make any difference in taste. I did... More

Can’t say the food is very authentic, but it’s still very very tasty. The service was good too. Would recommend if you're not looking for authenticity, but are good with just eating a great tasting food.
