“tasty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We decided to overlook the most recent (bad) review, noting that it was preceded by a batch of glowing ones. And were glad we did. Food was good, plentiful and reasonably priced - with one drink each the bill for 3 of us came to $80. Service was friendly and attentive. Menu is mainstream but with lots of choices. Ambiance is unremarkable but comfortable. We walked in and got a table immediately at 7:30 on a Friday night. I would definitely recommend.

“Good Curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

After a day on the hill we where really hungry and fancied a change from steak and ribs.
Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant and we were really happy that he had.
The menu was extensive and the waiter was knowledgeable about the dishes and answered questions about how the meal was flavoured and cooked.
Our food was great tasting, lots of flavour and spices, but not too hot.
If you like curry, go here, you won't be disappointed.

“Best Indian food we've had in ages!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Awesome authentic Indian food which was fresh, hot temp, spiciness as per order.Great unpretentious service.Good prices hence good value.We were there on a quiet low season night so hence average score for atmosphere but no fault of restaurant, but a good traffic of couples and a few medium/groups too.Simple setting. Food was a hit.If you're in Banff and like Indian dont hesitate!
