“excellent food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

excellent food at reasonable prices and very popular which can be a bit of a problem, because on the weekend it is difficult to get a table sometimes. It is also very noisy when its full. It is also a bit dark and the menu is hard to read for that reason. But the atmosphere is nice and the food is very tasty.

“Delicious food, worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Fantastic assortment of authentic Indian food made in a small authentic kitchen. We went on a busy night, so it took a little over an hour to get all of our food, but it was worth the wait.

“The best Indian meal in years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Can't recommend this reataurant enough! The food is fantastic, the service delightful and efficient, the decor is charming. We booked a table the day before & explained that we were vegetarians. When we arrived for dinner the next evening, the waiter remembered us and had already checked with the chef about what vegetarian options were on the menu and was able to make recommendations, which we followed. The meal was wonderfully full of flavour, very well cooked and presented. It was a really outstanding meal - I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Indian food.

“Good enough Indian food in the middle of Nelson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My friend and I were famished and were looking a hearty dinner on our first night in Nelson. We ordered the Indian set dinner which hit the spot. The food was tasty and except for one dish that was extremely spicy, overall the food was delicious. The portions were perfect and the staff was receptive. Not a bad experience.
