“Indian Cooking at its BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The food is excellent at this underrated restaurant. The location is ok but the food more than makes up for it. The food is not greasy or salty but the right mix of spices that sets this restaurant apart from all the other East Indian restaurants.

“Great Food.. Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Definitely a must visit if you want to try authentic south indian food. The service staff is nice and honest. If a dish takes long to prepare they will let you know while ordering. Only minus: dont have anything specific for kids.

“best indian food in Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

this is the only South Indian restaurant in Ottawa. The food is always great, there is nothing on the menue that I do not like. The buffet is excellent with fish curry, and the best lamb I ever had. Also a favorite is their paratha which goes great with any curry. The service is constantly well above par. This is one of the rare places I recommend to friends.

“My new favorite restaurant in Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Food was amazing! Indian buffet offers a great value for the quality of selection. Authentic cuisine at its finest. Building is a bit small for such quality of food.
