I came here with 6 friends and we received great food and prompt service. The Indian was cooked to our directions, I ordered extra spicy and that's what I received. We took our own bottle of rum and were topping up the cocktail jugs purchased over the bar for a bit of extra kick. The staff didn't have a problem... More

Sat here with a group of friends and waited 45 minutes after ordering before someone came out to inform us that they had run out of certain items. After an hour they brought out one dish out of 8 ordered. Nearly an hour and a half after ordering and after our first friend had finished his meal the rest of... More

Fast service, even in high season. Fast kitchen and food was on our table within 10-15 minutes. Great taste of our dishes- everything, excellent! No free wifi :-( (but that is not enough to make it a 4 star rating)

The food was nice with generous portions. Carefull with spicy plates, ask for sure. Fresh juices were a plus to the menu. Fortunately our waiter spoke very good english and he was very polite(as everybody else there). If you choose to seat on the floor (pilows) be aware that are veeeery dirty! For sure I will recomented.

Not bad, was nice for a change and some different food. In saying that I am picky with Indian and have had better. It was a lovely location on the beach though.

We went there two times, where the first time we didnt get to eat at all. We were a bit late, but as it probably took half an hour to get menus and to order, we were informed ten minutes after we had placed the order for food that the kitchen was closed. Tried again the next day. The waiters... More

We ate here a few times as I love my curries and start getting withdrawal symptoms if I don't get it for a long time. This place is an excellent addition to the dining scene in Gili T for sure ! They have a lot of dishes catering to all tastes. They had set Indian / Indonesian menus too which... More
