Way overpriced, and the food is kind of insipid. I can't understand why people rate it. Probably the worst indian restaurant I've been to. Not that the food is "bad", it just is really boring.

Went here twice on our visit. Not huge portions, but good vegetarian choice and yummy sauces. Friendly and welcoming.

Located in the centre and withing five minutes walk from the Hilton/Pullman, the quaility of "indian" food was average. The restaurant is run by an second generation Indian family who kept barging onto our table and did not let us talk- Instead he probed us and our origins with "expert" comments put in. The quality of the food was average... More

The food here is no doubt very good. I would recommend the Kerala fish or chicken. Be aware that poppadoms will come out once you order but you will be charged for them. Wine was good and very reasonable. A good meal and excellent service.

We were impressed by this restaurant on several levels. One a very fair price for a bottle of wine, RM70 for a wine we paid RM60 for in a super market. Two the service, not the fastest but professional, and the inattentiveness of the owner. The Kedai Bindi, exquisite. I am not surprised that the recipe is a secret. We... More

The food was ok, although on the more expensive side (just as their drinks). Shame it was only lukewarm and the portions were not the biggest. The staff was very attentive and friendly, just get rid of setting food on the table guests didn't order (but still have to pay for). I know it is clearly written on the menu,... More

We went here as my daughter had seen it when we were passing by, and we weren't disappointed, there were lots of choices to choose from, the only thing that the vindaloo beef my husband had did not taste as great as a usual vindaloo tastes, but every else was great, would definitely go again.

Dear Aussie Guru, We appreciate you and your family patronising our restaurant, I think it was on 6 August. We regret the Beef Vindaloo was not up to your mark. We take note of the shortcomings and you can be rest assured your next visit it would be a likeable and explosive Beef Vindaloo if ordered. Hope to see you... More

Because this place was around the corner of our hotel and our guide recommended it (although he did not like Indian food :-) ), we gave it a try. What a great choice! Very friendly staff. We had chicken tandoori, okra and naam which where all great!

Wanted to have a decent curry and we really fancied the look and menu of this place as it was obviously well maintained, clean and cared for even though it was shut.
