“Recommend it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Indian restaurant in the middle of Eixample, easy to find. The food was delicious, well done, and a huge portion, really worth the price. I do not share the comments here about the poor service, or I was lucky, but I had absolutely no problem with it. I recommend this place if you want to eat good Indian food at acceptable prices.

“The best Indian food in Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The other reviews complaining about bad service are wrong. The staff was extremely friendly, and perfectly understood our mix of Spanish and English. In fact, a very sweet woman who seemed to be the owner came by our table multiple times to ask how everything was and recognized us on our second visit with a huge smile. If you're a vegetarian, this is the place for you. Everything was delicious, especially the samosas which were some of the best I've had in my entire life. The spice levels seem to vary depending on the dish, so if you have a preference you should make it known at the beginning of the meal. We came early (before 9pm) for dinner on both a weeknight and Saturday and didn't need a reservation.

“Why spoilt the food with a poor service?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We booked the restaurant by internet. Our first surprise was to be asked to show our reservation number, having to wait to fond it to get the right to get offered a table.
We ordered the food but it took us nearly two hours to get the full meal.
Having ordered the starters, one main course was delivered 30 minutes before the others. No explanation. The naans did come 15 minutes after the main course.
That said, the food was good. Plenty in quantity ( including rice 3 for 5 was more than enough). The tiklka massala chicken and mutton good and the mango lassi tasty.
But you need to have time to enjoy and be ready to wait

“Nice food but very poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The food was very nice, and tasty.
But the ground floor was not clean it was smelling there.
The service was very terrible.
The Lady there was treating the guest like we are there to beg for food.
No meaning of hospitality at all..
They even don't know English.
I felt very bad on their behavior..
They should improve the service..I want remain them That It is not a crime to smile at the customer

“Don't miss this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We struggled a lot with the food in Barcelona. The first couple days of tapas were good and after that we couldn't handle the oil anymore. We love Indian Food so we stumbled upon this close to our hotel on trip advisor. With the limited reviews we were a bit apprehensive. Well I am so glad we went. In fact out of the week that we were in Barcelona we ended up going here for dinner 4 times. The food quality was amazing, service was friendly, house wine was great and value for dollar was perfect. I would highly reccomend this to anyone traveling that likes Indian food and wants to get away from the Tapas.
