“Possibly the best Indian restaurant in Waterloo Region”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We have been to this restaurant a number of times for dinner but yesterday we decided to try their Lunch Buffet.

At $11.50 per person, the buffet is a good deal.

I had a small bowl of soup, appetizers and I tried all the mains. Needless to say, I got stuffed and left quite satisfied.

This is a small restaurant and it has the best Indian food in Waterloo Region. We've been here before and we will be back.

“Don't get delivery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I spent $35 on food and didn't even feel full. Portion sizes were small, very overpriced for the quality. Also the chicken was really dry, probably why they drowned it in sauce..

“Great food, good service, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My son and I had dinner together on Nov 8, 2012. It was a Thursday evening, and we arrived around 5:30. There was only one other table occupied when we arrived. The waitress (a gathered she was the wife of the couple that owned the place) seated us and served us. She was not very enthusiastic or bubbly, but the service was certainly good, and she was friendly enough. We had some appetisers and two mains with rice and naan. honestly, I forget the names of the dishes. The appetisers were the little triangles stuffed with meat and peas, along with three dipping sauces. One main was chicken in a creamy spinach sauce, very mild and delicious. The other was lamb in a very hot sauce (Saag??) and it was hot and delicious. They also serve Kingfisher and Cheetah beer. They also have a catering business, buffet lunches and on weekends, and sell some of their sauces by the jar. All in all, very good food, good service, nice quiet atmosphere in a clean looking restaurant.

“good experience...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The food I ordered off the menu was delicious, with some options I have not seen often in other Indian restaurants, such as the masala dosa, and other south indian cuisine that tasted very authentic and flavourful! Very friendly, and it was nice to hear them greeting some of the more regular customers by name. Really good tandoori chicken! They even delivered outside of KW as we ordered for about 7 people.
Have eaten there several times, will go again.
