Can't expect more for a first time Indian eat in Kiev

As my review heading says, I did not expect such a good food. The food is not as spicy as what we get in India but it is fine. We are adjusted to such tastes in not so spicy food eating states of India. I had Indian in Prague, Krakow and Berlin too. Berlin's was best, I would rank Himalaya... read more

Throughout the years it's been our favorite Indian restaurant in Kiev! Love the food, the look of this place and the service! Definitely recommend it! Our favorite dish - butter chicken and garlic naan :)

The food is far from Indian. We had business lunch, it was not bad but completely tasteless, lacking any spices. The naan was good. The surrondings are Indian style but that's it. Average Ukrainian staff-services. Hard to find, they are building outdoor seating these days.

The restaurant reinvented itself at new address. Minor works are continued on outdoor seating place, but everything is working perfectly. Until 30th of July you can have 121 UAH discount per couple via pokupon. Menu is not changed very much, I noted only raita disappearance. Still best money/tradition combination in city.

Very tasty Paneer tikka and chicken tikka masala. Potato vindaloo was very good. Garlic naan was outstanding. Samosas were very average and won't order again. It was nice to find a place in Kiev to get a decent cup of chai, though it could use some more ginger. Overall a nice restaurant that we'll return to. Reasonable prices, about $10... More

The restaurant is at Olympiska metro station. The Google directions are wrong. The ambiance is good and so is the food. Great variety of food .

Went by today and the windows visible from Khreschatyk street are covered with graffiti. Walked upstairs to the restaurant and it is absolutely kaput. It was good while it lasted!

Hi! Actually... it's not! Due to the unrest on Kreschatyk, we moved to a new location! Now we are on 80 Krasnoarmeiska street, right near the stadium. Come and visit us! More

I eat a lot of Indian food however in Ukraine I struggle to find a decent Indian restaurant and I usually find the curries to be quite bland in taste. I visited here with my girlfriend on a quiet sunday and it was her first time having Indian food. The rice was very good, as good as anywhere and I... More

This is such a gem of a restaurant in Kyiv. The location is on a busy street but the atmosphere inside is quiet and peaceful. The owner is actually from the U.S. (although Indian by birth) and he is there helping his father. The food is amazing and the service is spectacular. The prices are very reasonable as well. If...
