Good food bad service

The place does serve good food... no doubt in that, it's just the service that dampens the overall experience It took them 25 minutes to get the food to us. After waiting for 25 mins you are not in the mood to eat anymore. The management should work on it.

Stopped by for dinner one evening at the Salcedo branch. Though the menu is quite extensive, the quality of the food is disappointing. We tried a masala poppadum and chicken kebab to start. The poppadum was small and not crispy at all. The toppings were just onions and tomatoes with lemon and it didn't taste great. The chicken kebab had... More

I love this place. All of the dishes I had there were fantastic. I ate there at least six times over a three week period. Both ate in, and got food to go. The service was good and friendly. I loved the tomato soup, which was spicy (at my request) and the spinach biryani. For me, it was all good.

Will recommend this place for Indian Food. Definitely not the kind you get in India or elsewhere, but comes reasonably close & you cannot expect too much when you are in Manila & that too being a Veggie. this place is life saver. The service however is pathetic & not too friendly. The owner's if they are around will take... More

Want a dish without a tomato base? then don't eat here. Only had a main course but the sauce was pretty poor and looking around at other diners the sauce looked identical. The peshwari naan was burnt on the bottom and that was all I could taste. Will not be going back.

The title of this review pretty much sums up the review itself. We ate Butter Chicken and Chicken Biryani which was very good. The samosas were a little over done. The service was poor. Forgot half the drinks order and had to be reminded about the rice also. Will return however based on the food alone.

Been there multiple times on my visits to Manila. Probably the best Indian food in Manila. A big fan of the home style chicken curry and Dal Tadka, these two are a must have. Highly recommended to all

Among the better indian food restaurants in Makati. Service is prompt. Of course, it does not qualify as authentic indian food but it is better than the likes of Kashmir which are way of the mark. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to try indian food.
