It was fine.

Not amazing. Not bad. Apparently Indian cuisine is scarce in Miami, so not surprising that this place didn't blow us away. But it was pretty good.

Unfortunately the negative impression isn't due to the quality of the food. Food quality can be improved. Sadly there may be no hope for the carelessness in the kitchen and the uncaring culture demonstrated by the front of house staff and apparently nurtured and approved by ownership. I had in my Chicken Korma a shredded piece of metal that made... More

Lovely service and great, authentic tasting home cooked food, which is saying a lot in this town. Sweet people running the place really seem to care about their guests.

I found this Indian restaurant on yelp and tripadvisor. On arrival looked in the door and had second thoughts. Friends said, it's ok, let's try. Wood chairs n benches, loose legs. Greeted ok. Wine served in regular cups, unless insisted get the wine glasses. They had, but wouldn't bring them. Food was good, hot and quick. I'll go back for... More

Having come from the UK on holiday we wanted to try an Indian in Miami and as this was not far from our hotel it was ideal, the menu offers a good selection of dishes to choose from to suit all taste buds. The poppadoms are served like a funnel which is a lovely touch. I had the Fish Masala... More

We had dinner today and the food was good. It had flavour without being too spicey or greasy.The ambience is okay - not very swanky but has a certain charm to it. The service was good , the staff is attentive. The food is a bit pricey , that is probably because many restaurants around the South beach area charge... More

My wife is very hard to please specially when it comes to indian restaurants. She loved the gratis appetizer they serve with bread and raita, the presentation and quality of her food and we walked out very satisfied. They were very busy since it's Christmas and south beach is peaking with tourists.

Not a pleasant experience at all. First of all, the wait time to get a table was more than an hour. After getting the table, order was taken after 20 mins. Then after 20 more mins they served wrong food. Served chicken briyani instead of veg briyani. I'm a vegan. They don't care to apologize for the mistake. I wouldn't... More

While the food was quite good (I think) we didn't get to really enjoy it. We came at 7:30 pm on a Sunday night (12/14/14) to a nearly empty restaurant. We stood at the entrance waiting to be seated and were ignored. Finally after a couple came in and seated themselves (in the table we were eyeing) we too attempted... More

Great Indian food ... near the beach (2 blocks away) ... good ambience (quiet) .... good staff .... not really cheap but then Indian food in a formal sit down restaurant is not cheap ....
