Tasty Indian restaurant

This restaurant is on the 1st floor and accessed via stairs in the ground floor pub. Once upstairs, the restaurant is quite narrow, and appears a little dark and untidy. The food however, was good.

The worst person ever encounter, you should go if you are a caucasian, else no guarantee that you will get any service here. No good indian test or hospitality for Indian people.

I went to this restaurant to try given the feedback but was not very pleased with the restaurant. entrance is a narrow one through a bar, the restaurant is not insulated for winter and it is pretty cold inside. food was at best average and am doubtful about the alcohol i had there

In a cold weather temperature in Shanghai, a friendly owner welcomed me and just like that I can already feel the warm of the place. I ordered a butter naan bread, butter chicken, briyani rice and the owner suggested a cup of rose tea which I added to my order. And here are my review of the food: - the... More

This wonderful little restaurant is right across the road from the Hilton. It was brilliant. I ended up going back twice. The food is Northern Indian and is fresh, spicy and typical. I cannot speak highly enough of the place and the price is about half of what you would pay for a restaurant inside the Hilton and about twice... More

I am foodie and would always look for a good restaurant. I missed Indian food for 6 days as I never had time to find an Indian restaurant during my stay at Hilton. My wife from India found out about Kaveen's Kitchen and told me to visit them. It's bang opposite to Hilton (30-mtrs). I just loved the food I... More

For last 3 years I have stayed at Hilton across and have charged up my curry level at this restaurant. Vijay the owner is a nice man. He also performs some magic tricks for entertainment of the guests at his will. The food is good and reasonably priced.

A decent and delicious Indian meal in Shanghai? It s possible. The owner is a true host in the traditional sense. helpful, polite, takes care of his customers, heck, even a little magic trick, that leaves you going home with a smile.

To make it short: I'm a big fan of Indian food. Tried every Indian restaurant in Shanghai already and Kaveen just has the best and most authentic Indian Food in town. The owner of the restaurant is super friendly. Book a table and you will be treated to a personal magic show right in front of your eyes!
