“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Ive eaten here on a number of occasions and each time it has been excellent.

Ive been as part of a group but also on my own which is no problem as the staff look after you very well.

The food is very good but I do suggest asking the waiters for the recommendations this way you will be sure to get a great meal also be sure and request your prefered spice level .

Ive eaten the Lamb, the chicken and the fish all are great.

The selection of breads and rice is also extensive so they will be sure to have your favourite.

They also have Indian beer which was chilled and pleasant on a warm evening.

I also recommend sitting on the balcony it may not be much of a view but its great to be able to eat great Indian food ourside.

“The best in JB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Built in an old house, this place offers superb northern indian food leaving your tummy trully contented. Catered from them for a couple of functions and guests loved their food.
Make a reservation if your heading there in a group. Great ambience, however, parking is always a challenge during busy periods.

“Great Briyani”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I really love the briyani here. Its really nice. This place is a great place to be. The environment is different from other Indian Shop. Build in an old house and there is separate family room.
Great place.
