“onion bhaji was good!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

ok... tandoori chicken was a miss... nan was so so...rice was as expected.. bhaji was really good and so were the little sauces that come with it. in spite of asking for the bhaji as a first---it all came at once... and the bhaji had about 8 pieces..way too much for a starter but oh so good.
loved the indian movie posters.. and the music. it was pretty empty on the weekend ( sunday)

I might go back... but its not the best indian food in KZ.

“Even better than last time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Pleasant service, good food. Would have preferred to have all food arrive more at the same time but ok. Spices seemed appropriate, something difficult to find. Feels like a comfortable place to go with friends, relax and enjoy the evening. Reservations were probably not needed but I called ahead anyway and to be sure they had a favorite dessert. Their delivery service was also good the one time I had it at someone else's house.

The squid appetizer was a tasty surprise which I would order again. The tandoori chicken was quite good.

They also have Thai food.

“A little spice in Astana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I went with friends to eat on a business trip. The food came out quickly and they pour LARGE on the wine by the glass. Beer selection was what they had, sometimes they run out so have backups. Food was spicy as requested and the owner was friendly and came around while we were eating to get feedback and tell us they now do a delivery service. All around a good value and worth a trip if you are in Astana.

“Excellent lunch, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Just moved to Aatana and was hoping to find good Indian food--This is the place! Hot bread just as we were seated. Lovely buffet with lots of good options. Nice atmosphere for lunch or dinner, planning a trip back soon with my husband. Happy it's here, I understand they also do take away.
