I was particularly impressed with the palak paneer. Service was prompt... read more

Hubby and I went there for dinner, looking forward to some good curry. It was good -- but finding three long hairs in the food was definitely not good. Won't be going back.

I had the butter curry and it was very good. The place itself is basic. But the food is so good. And friendly service .

I have eaten in much more expensive Indian restaurants and this place is a great value and the food holds up. For a small town I could not believe you could get Indian food this good I would highly... More

It's a small town with a curry house, one that offers an authentic and friendly service but which ultimately misses the boat a little with it's dishes. The guys running the place are impeccably polite and friendly, enough to make me feel a bit guilty for leaving an average ranking. The starters were actually quite nice but the main dishes... More

I had the veggie curry at a medium 6 heat factor( I do like spicy) and this was just the right amount of heat. My husband, had the milder version of the chicken curry and enjoyed it very much.For an appie we... More

I live in Osoyoos (I am new here) and I thought i would have to drive to Kelowna for a decent Indian restaurant. Not the case. Amazing food.. Amazing owners.... be patient you may have to wait for your food - but it's worth it!!
