“Decent Indian Restaurant - nice change from Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Found mixed reviews on here but decided to try it anyway. My pal's a chef by trade and he gave it the thumbs up! Very good all round. Full of Indians so they're doing something right! No frills restaurant but very enjoyable. I'd definitely go again. Just a nice change from eating Thai every day. Friendly owner, came over to ask if we enjoyed everything. A pleasant experience.

“Booking a table”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Having read the other reviews, and thinking that perhaps this is a busy restaurant, I phoned to book a table. Waste of time; the 'English' speaking person couldn't understand me (I'm English, and she rudely told me I couldn't speak my own native language) and the Thai speaking person couldn't understand my Thai wife.

Why bother, if this is representative of the customer service - sorry, but they need immediate training in customer skills.

“Great indian food, good location, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

This food here was amazing and located opposite the 2nd road entrance to Central Festival shopping centre it is also a convenient location. We were a little intimidated at first as the place was jam packed full of indian customers, which must be a good sign for an indian restaurant. However, me and my Aussie mate weren't put off and headed inside. What a great decision.

The food was excellent, we had a selection of different curries, side dishes and breads and every thing was just brilliant. The restaurant itself was no frills, but well presented, clean and cool with both aircon and fans.

The staff were excellent too and the owner/manager seemed genuinely interested in what we thought of the food and couldn't have been more helpful. They obviously take pride in the food they serve and want their customers to be happy - always a great thing for a restaurant.

Great food, great prices, great service, great location. We'll be back - many times.
