You get splendid Indian food here . It is slightly over priced because , i think it is the only Indian restaurant you will find there. You also find a lot of Americans dining there. It is at a walk able distance from Sheraton hotel . The ambiance and the hospitality is quite amaxzing

The Indian good you get here is great. The taste is authentic and tasty. The only thing that is a little bit a minus point is the price which is a little high

The food here is very good, and the price is very reasonable. But beware if they offer any free samples. You will be charged a hefty price for them! Left a bad taste in my mouth and won't return.

Great restaurant for Indian food in Xiamen. Very authentic and good curries. Tandoori chicken is good along with the ugly beer.

People cal it expensive, I call it value for money. I was actually taken back by the quality of food here, absolutely above expectation. The portion size, the flavour and the quality of ingredients used is excellent. I highly recommend this place, specially for an authentic indian experience. The bhindi masala and the plain palak is a must try here.
