Authentic Indian in a relaxed beach setting

Extremely tasty Indian food, much better than we expected on a little island! The chicken tikka, dhal and prawn curry were amazing. Cocktails are great too. Would definitely recommend for a change from BBQ food!

This is the only Indian Establishment on the island but its very expensive compared to the rest of the places. Also the food is just about average and nothing extraordinary to talk about. Service although was good and I didn't have any problem with it.

We ordered a selection of great Indian food from the set menu, then added on to this. We had a nice variety of dishes and the staff was super helpful when helping us make decisions about what to order. The atmosphere is good, looking on to the main street, this restaurant is where all the action is! The food here... More

We were a group of 6 people having drinks and smoking sheesha at night. Service caught us while walking in the street and offered us to sit on the mattress area, as it is the main attractive of the place. Unfortunately, after 5 minutes we were demanded to leave the area as they had to tidy, and move to the... More

The service is slow and rude. The food is bland for India food. We waited over an hour for our food to come. We reminded our server 3 times to check on our food. He said it is really busy so the food is not yet ready. When it finally came out, the food was cold like it had been... More

We visited this Indian restaurant once and will never return. The service was slow, main course meals are smaller than what you would expect from an entrée. We asked for our bill several times and eventually went up to the cashier who appeared very confused. Other customers suffered the same.

A perfect restaurant in the bussier part of Trawangan. Close to the sea with low seats (pillows) and normal tables. Also waterpipes are available. They don't have a big menu card but what they serve is of excellent quality. One of the best indian restaurants i have ever been to. The prices are reasonable.

Loved the lay out & ambiance of the restaurant. Sitting down on the floors on cute littles cushions was something different & the kids loved it. We ordered a number of dishes & we loved all of what we ordered, especially the Briyani & the Chicken curry. You can sit facing the sea & it makes a wonderful view without... More

Nearly didn't go because of negative reviews in trip advisor, but was so glad I did, food and drinks were great and not expensive, for a small island in the middle of nowhere, hello, Give it a try, it always depends on what you order. Will go back next trip for sure
