Living in Canada for almost 2 years I miss food from India, I visited this restaurant for dinner and enjoyed the Chicken Vindaloo. The food menu has a variety. Will try the buffet next time in Banff.

Superb Indian food. The restaurant hosts are very friendly and helpful. Had the chicken 65 and madras chicken and reminded me of Hyderabad food. A must visit for Indian food. Special mention to Praveen who customised the food to our tastes.
