Disgusting food... i had a shrimp dish that was inedible. Some of the other people in our party had better luck, but my food was so bad. In the end I couldn't even complain about it because the staff was avoiding me (i think because they knew the food was disgusting). Will never go there again.

One of the best restaurants in Jakobstad. It is situated in an old cellar with nice atmosphere. The food is average, but prices is also moderate. Friendly staff. They have also Indian dishes, but they are top tasty for me. The owners are of Indian origins.

Friends recommended this restaurant to us, and it was worthy of their praise! Inside a cellar, great service and the best lamb curry to date in Finland! Great atmosphere, rather a long wait but it was definitely worth the wait...

Two visits. Both long waits for service and food delivery. Food undercooked (chicken) on one occasion and on other occasion food has plastic in salad. Sadly reputation is overhyped.

The indian food is good. I'm a hearty eater, but somehow I'm never able to finish my portion in this place...
