“Fantastic view - but room for improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We live in Hillerød and have been wanting to try out this new Indian restaurant with the fantastic location. We did so last night and it was a mixed experience. We were greeted by the nice waiter and placed at a table with an nice view. The menu card was not huge but it had some of the traditional dishes we like - Chicken Corma, Samosa etc.

For starters we ordered Samosas and unfortunately one of the was still frozen inside, which kind of ruined the experience - the other Samosas were nice. The main course was also very tasty but it was served on ice cold plates which was as shame. The bowl of rice served for two persons was very small hence we ate it in the first serving and then wanted to order some more. Unfortunately we had to wait - what felt to long before the waiter came - which mainly was due to the decor with two levels an no clear view to the bar where the Waiter was located.

All in all OK food but a lot of small things which could be better.

“Decent Indian food with a great view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We visited this place during our holiday in Denmark, craving some Indian food after a few days in a part of the country where a curry is simply not an option.

Being very frequent diners of Indian food we tried not to set our expectations too high but we were pleasantly surprised.

There is not a lot of choice on the menu but we both managed to find something we wanted. We would have preferred more options, though.

The food turned out to be quite flavoursome and tasted rather authentic but we would have preferred them less adapted to Danish palates.

While eating, we could enjoy a nice view of Frederiksborg castle.

All in all not bad but not quite what we are used to from th UK.
