this place is horrendous! Stay away. the owner is hardly ever there. he has businesses all over the u.s. and is a cheap skate. he lives in million dollar homes and he doesn't provide basic essentials in bathrooms like toilet paper, soap or napkins. I dread to even think what his kitchen looks like. the only thing that comes to... More

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel concierge, since this is the only Indian restaurant on this island. We went there for lunch, and only the daily buffet was available. The waiter clearly indicated that order from the menu was only for a selected few dishes and it will take much time to prepare. The buffet was ready.... More

Nasty Indian food, with poor service and extremely pricey. We visited for lunch, the lunch buffet was average looking hence decided to order from the menu, and half the vegetarian dishes were not available because the guy did not have the ingredients...can you believe that???!!! Palak paneer costed over $17.50 (absolute RIP OFF) and the quantity was very limited, I... More

We had the lunch buffet. I'm a big fan of Indian food and I thought the food here was excellent. I tried everything in the buffet and liked it all. The price was reasonable. It's nothing fancy just good food.

The decor should have warned us! Orange painted walls and blue ceiling-- it looked tacky . We have eaten Indian food in many countries , including India , and have not had such a poor quality meal before. I ordered chicken tikka which came after we had finished eating and was supposed to be without bones-- it was full of... More

Lunch buffet was poorly cooked and seasoned, veggies were limp, and the waiter acted like we were imposing on him when we asked for naan.

One of our best meals in Kapaa. The food was excellent and good value too. The restaurant was very, very busy so service was really slow.... staff were pleasant but rushed off their feet.

This was so funny. After being on holiday for two and half weeks, we were already missing our curries. When we saw an Indian Restaurant, my children's expressions were beyond funny. We walked in, and wham, they were having a buffet dinner. Unfortunately most of the dishes were vegetarian.They did however have chicken tikka and chicken korma. The way we... More

Went there as it was the only indian restaurant there. Apparently there was another ( Chutney) which closed shop, was supposed to be better. The buffet was pathetic The only silver lining was that it had plain rice and Dal makhani( 3/5 rating). The spinach channa was awful, tasted sour and spoilt- not even merits a terrible on the scale.... More

We went there for dinner. We had ordered samosa for appetizer which was very oily. Kadai Paneer, Navratan korma and naan for entree and it was not at all tasty. It had some strong tangy taste. Its expensive and not at all worth it.
