“Nice Indian Food...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Not many Indian food alternatives in Almaty and this from one the good ones.
The food is really good and tasty.

Generally not packed during the lunch hours and can be enjoyed.
Airconditioning is sufficient enought during the hot summer days especially when it is combined with spicy hot food.

There is small parking at the out side and also a small outdoor seating area.
Need to be tried if you like Indian.

“Good Indian Food for Almaty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

This restaurant is both a Indian place and also a Thai place. The menu is divided in cuisines, the first few pages Thai then the rest Indian. The food selection is very big and there is something for everyone. The naan is excellent. The prices are also very reasonable, plan to spend about 1500-2000 per dish. Overall a very good place to eat, maybe not the best Indian food but then again you are in Almaty and for that it is very good.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

I'd heard a lot about the Indian food here, being a Brit in Almaty, but was disappointed. The food wasn't terrible but I was expecting something special and what I got was ordinary.
