In spite of the unanimously terrible reviews here for this restaurant, I went last night because, 1. I wanted to see how bad it could be, and 2. more importantly, I was missinga bit of Indian food after 10 days away from home, in this carnivorous country that only seems to believe in killing and eating cows. Well, the verdict... More

I have had time to travel for 8 months in India both in the South and north and while I was there I grew to love the Indian food. I am German and of course we are not used to lot of curries and spices so it took a while for me like the taste. I arrived in Rio with... More

I would not rate the food at all bad, though some of the people I was with, who did not like spicey food, were not pleased (the manager said certain dishes were not spicey-- and to him they probaby were not-- while to others they defnitely were). I would have given a rating of 3 stars (average) but the prices,... More

We were told by our hotel that this is the only Indian restaurant in Rio nearby . It being Diwali, we wanted to eat some good Indian Food for dinner and so we took a cab from Copacabana to go to this restaurant.. When we entered there was no one in the restaurant, which scared us and for sure there... More

Appearance of the restaurant was very poor, you can tell how they had attempted to give the place an indian theme. But because there was no true Indian heritage they were unable to pull this off. The decor was poor, with what seemed like a mini temple as soon as you walk in. The table layout kis like a small... More

We ended up in this Indian restaurant as we could not find any other in Rio. The place is dark and dingy run by an Indian who used to live in London. The food is not Halal/Kosher. The food was vey poor and the portions were very small. What was very frustrating was the price. The price of curries were... More
