Tasty curry from set menu

Didn't try the sheesha here, just got a curry from the set menu (korma and rogan josh). Good value, decent enough food and a nice place to sit and chill out too.

Whilst eating my curry I found a screw in it I told the waiter and he was very polite and apologetic/embarrassed about the while situation, other family members also got sick from their curry the day after however apart from all that the food was great. When I found the screw in my curry I was really disappointed because I... More

Had a tikka masala and found it very good, naan is also delicious. I would only have liked a bigger portion of rice for the quantity of curry one gets. Totally recommend it!

Amazing food and friendly staff. We ordered mix veggie curry and nan which was perfect. Wish we were hungry for non-veg and had time for Sheesha! Apparently the owner is of Indian origin who is from England. If you are hungry on this island definitely go eat at Pesona.

If you find yourself on Gili T with a heavily pregnant wife who has a sudden craving for green chutney then by all means go here just for the chutney. If you're looking for decent Indian food it certainly is not here. On a serious note we were severely disappointed with the whole experience more so with the food than... More

Wow, your sitting on the ground as if you were in India itself and the menu choices were really good and reasonably priced. If you like a Sheesha it was a tad expensive but that didn't bother me. Great Food

I've heard this place is run/managed by an Indian. It really is quite something to bring Indian food to such a remote place. Bravo for that. But truth be told, this is the worst Indian food I've had overseas in a so called Indian restaurant. Biryani was nothing but fried rice. Dal makhani wasn't makhani or even fully cooked. Lesser...

Dear guest. I find your review offensive and its a shame you never asked to speak to the restaurant manager so as to help with your issues you experienced on the day you dined with us. The owner is Indian (that's me), and I eat here regularly by myself or with my family and absolutely love it, which is why... More

Incredible Indian food on Gili T! They have a great combo special that is good value for money. Butter chicken with a samosa, naan, raita and rice. Authentic Indian cuisine, beautiful and breezy beachfront spot and great service. Highly recommend.

What a great spot. Very friendly staff, located on the main strip of Gili T. I had Tandoori Chicken with egg Fried Rice and it was great. Cooked in the way I am used to in the UK. My wife has Chicken Butter Masala with Naan bread and this was also great. One of the best food I had on... More
