Excellent tandoori chicken...

Nice Indian food, we went for tandoori given North Indian speciality. The paneer dish was also tasty (in tomato sauce) and different to what we are used to at home. Enjoyed a couple of glasses of tiger with it. Service very nice, understated and not at all pushy. Prawns were relatively expensive... read more

Went there the first night in Kuching and the food was pretty good. We ordered prawns masala and dal tadka. The waiters are very nice, but a little pushy on suggesting things. Decided to go back a second time and we were less impressed. The malai kofta was made with raisins and was very sweet... Never had malai kofta like... More

we had a lunch there but had to cancel some dishes as it took over 45 minutes to be served. Not acceptable although the taste of the food and the mango lassi drinks were excellent

Very attentive staff, the food was a little lacking in flavour and spice, botikababs were good. Good menu selection with lots of veggie options for vegans. A bit over priced for what you get.

We were recommended to go to Lyn's Thandoori Restaurant and had our hopes high. The place itself is cosy and the atmosphere nice. The waiter was a bit too anxious to get us order more expensive special dishes instead of the ones we actually wanted. The food was very ordinary. We didn't leave food on our plates but there was...

The food itself was ok, but compared to the descriptions in Lonely Planet we were very disappointed. Had expected some authenticity, but the place seemed fake - Trying to be much more upscale than it can handle: linen napkins, knife and fork, and the menu being brought forward as if it was the 8'th wonder of the world. In reality... More

Having tried a lot of Indian food in the local restaurants I would have to say that Lyn's was the best as it is made fresh as you place your order. Since it is made fresh you will have to wait a bit but the food is definitely worth the wait. It should however be noted that good food comes... More
