“Excellent authentic Mughlai cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

When in Mombasa,one must pay a visit to this excellent restaurant.It is one of the oldest in Mombasa but the cuisine is superb with a range of spices so that one can either have your meal really spicy or just mild(to suit your taste).The owners are always around and ever helpful in helping you choose something to your liking.The Haandi Biriyani is my favourite dish and I love it hot and spicy

“Superb Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Fabulous Indian cuisine, with great selections for vegetarians. What I liked is that they made anything you wanted in a NON-spicy way, which is good for me. I loved the exotic tastes.

Have not been there for a while but my memories of this place are good. Food service and inside setting are good for Mombasa standards. I hope they still keeping up the good standards.
