Great house and dine concept, price can be very upmarket but worth the taste we don't have another place like this in JB. Wonderful concept though,

One of the best Indian restaurant in Johor Bahru. Has private dining room if on request. Very authentic Northern Indian fare & also Pakistani too. Try the banana lassi it's great to cool down your bowels after much intake of spicy foods.

There were four of us so we ordered four different things and all of them were very good. If we ever make it back to JB, we will certainly... More

Loved the food, quite possibly the best Indian food in Johor. It was brilliant. Excellent service and very professional staff. I always make it a point to visit them whenever I drop by JB.

Unless you want to spoil your date night, never go to this restaurant. Even the furniture was very poor. The chairs were... More
