Careful on address

Correct address is 482 Heping road in down town Hualien. Current address 40 km south of city is wrong. Posted photo with blue street number proving this. Another restaurant stole their name and is perhaps confusing things. Small place with seats for 30 but very affordable and good quality food.

If you want authentic Indian food in Hualien this is your destination. Enjoyed a tasty meal at a very reasonable price. I'm a lightweight when it comes to spicy food so even with a request for mild I found it a bit spicy. The owner/chef is quite friendly and came by our table to check in our meal and chat.

It is a small joint on the road side. Being vegetarians and not Chinese speaking, there were few options for us and this was one of them. Didn't mind. Food was ok.

The curry chicken is well-spiced and softly cooked, chicken has juice and taste. Fish curry the same with a little bit too much pepper. A lot of complementary offerings make the meal really affordable. My recommendation for oriental food, so famous that it is copied with same name in same town.

This is a really nice restaurant in Hualien. We ate thrice (lunch-dinner-lunch). Naan, chicken tikka and lamb briyani were really nice. Frankly telling, the foods are very good with reasonable price compared to other Indian restaurants in Taiwan. Friendly staffs and located in the city, just 7 to 10 minutes from the Hualien railway station. If anyone wants to eat... More

The restaurant is open for dinner from 16 30, but owner let us in at 16 00. He was really hospitable and treated us with complimentary Indian tea. Delicious curry was ready in 10 minutes. This restaurant has a wonderful Indian atmosphere and I would recommend it for travelers who would like to take a break from Chinese cuisine.

Friendly staff. They were accommodating and speak English. Has vegetarian selection of about 5 entrees. I had the paneer with nan bread. Nan was great. Food is tasty. They close at 10 but last order is at 9pm.
