“Good clean food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The food we ordered was all tasty, the roti and chicken tikka masala were nice. The atmosphere and location was not ideal, but once seated we had a good experience, and would go back again if we were in the area.

“Good food, very close to Sakorn Residence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Lovey little indian restaurant. Very reasonably priced. Food is good although curries are small and it's worth asking for extra spice if you like them hot. Extras such as Rotis are good. Well worth a visit.

Note outdoor dining area only.

“A hidden curry gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Staying by the river in Chiang Mai, we had always explored the dining options right on the water-front. After reading an article in a Sydney newspaper, we decided to try this restaurant, and were so glad we did. It is set in a quiet area back from the river behind Wat Ket, and this in itself was a welcome change, having been around the river for the chaos of Loy Krathong.

The food and the friendliness of the owners made eating here a top-notch experience. The owner is happy to sit and chat when it's not too busy and we found that he had lived and studied in Sydney for a few years. We ate some delicious Malaysian-flavoured curries, but what really clinched it for us was the roti - oh, the most beautiful chewy/flaky roti I have ever had! I quickly ordered another.

This restaurant seems to be popular with ex-pats; on our first night there was a large group of gents - Aussie, American and English - who seemed very at home here. This is understandable - a relaxing dining experience in a peaceful leafy laneway, eating very well while counting geckoes on the ceiling. We came back the following night, as did other reviewers!

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The best Indian food we've ever eaten, period. Nice host and servers, cute restaurant. Everything we tried was fresh and tasted home-cooked.

“Lovely food at great price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Tried this by chance as we were staying next door and needed food. Quick takeaway service, all nicely packaged up. Great menu choices, with other home cooked products, all set in informal pretty patio garden so not like the typical curry house back home! We liked it so much we went back the following night!
