We found this restaurant from Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor so thought we'd give it a go. It was a nice change from the noodle cuisine of the last 2 weeks and such great flavour to the dishes we tried. They have an extensive range of Vego options as well as plenty of great meat-based meals. We were welcomed and engaged... More

I am writing this review after my 3rd visit to the restaurant. My 1st visit (in 2012) turned out great. Portions were big and the food taste great! However, things started going downhill from there. Portions got smaller and the quality of the food deteriorated. I only decided to write this review after being deeply disappointed with my third visit.... More

Dear borneowarrior, You claimed that you came to our restaurant 3 times. "The first time was in 2012. During that visit, everything was great, plenty of rice and beef in the briyani, the taste was superb"; but you did not made any comment in the TripAdvisor pertaining to that feel good visit to our restaurant. So, therefore I feel you... More

We visited on 9th July and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We selected the place because it is the highest rated Indian in Kuching, deservedly so I am sure. Based on the waiters recommendation we had the 1/2 tandoori chicken with spicy sauce (they tailor the sauce as you like it) a lamb curry and a cauliflower and cashew nut vegetable... More

Dear Mmsie, We thank you for patronising our restaurant on 9 July 2014 and appreciate your candid comments, some of which we noted especially the Persian Pulao orange almond rice which you found it extra fruity taste. We shall certainly change our technique of the Pulao rice preparation. It is heartening to note that you took the time and effort... More

We called in for a light meal even though the restaurant was a distance from our hotel. Service was quick and friendly. Our questions re the menu were answered genteely and fully. It was clear others there were return customers. Would eat there again.

We asked the waiter if we could have something free of dairy products and he said the chef could do a curry. We were amazed when the dish arrived covered in some white liquid. When asked what it was the waiter explained it was cream. A discussion then ensued involving an exchange of opinion over whether cream was actually a... More

Dear AChee74, It is very seldom people in Kuching patronise Indian restaurant and make an apt comment on its operation i.e. ambience, service, food & drinks, etc. I'm glad that you enjoyed our hospitality during your visit in June 2014 and hope to see you again in our restaurant. Thank you. More

We had a nice dinner here, since the staff is extremely personable. The downside is that the food is not that great. Among several dishes we ordered a prawn massala, and a lamb dish. The prawn massala had no prawns, just tiny shrimp in a lot of sauce! What a disappointment..... The lamb dish had part lamb part lamb skin... More

Delicious indian food... we ordered the tandoori and several veggie dishes and ate every bite. The staff were super friendly and the atmosphere was decent. I think this is the best Indian restaurant in town.
