An excellent meal. Not London quality but very, very close. We had all our usual suspects, Chicken Tikka Masala, Palak Paneer, Dal, Kofta and all were delicious, appropriately spiced. The naan was perfect. We stopped in, ordered, left, came back at time indicated all was piping hot and ready. Definitely one of the best Indian meals we've had outside of... More

Best Indian food I ever ate. I wish they would do a little something more with the Decore it has so much potential to be even better than it is.

We visited the restaurant around 5pm on a Saturday evening and there were only 2 customers in the restaurant. Several tables had "reserved" signs but some did not. We were told to have a seat at a table in the centre of the restaurant. We stated our preference ... a table next to the wall that didnt have a reservation... More

Had to wait an extra 30 min for a pick up order, however it was all worth it in the end. The staff were very friendly and apologized for the wait. The chicken in both our curries were tender and juicy! Great flavor and good portions = Awesome Value. Would love to dine in next time.

We visited with friends a couple of weeks ago. The lunch buffet was adequate, and the food pretty average, but good.

We had reservations for four; we got there on time and a waitress showed us where to sit and handed us menus. Then she and the other employee ( or owner?) continued cleaning other tables. After at least ten minutes we asked her if we could order drinks, were told "I'm not your waitress, but go ahead, we've been very... More

Hi Vikas, All our items and freshly cooked and prepared. Tandoori chicken is cooked in hot tandoor clay which the temperature reaches well over 500 C, so there’s no way our tandoori chicken was served cold. Each of curries is cooked with over 7 to 9 different spices and herbs that go in each of our dish depending on the... More

As new to Penticton, a friend recommended Lachi. We were happy to find a new place to satisfy our Indian food desires as our previous favourite closed down. The food was all excellent and the service was good. Icing on the cake was we could walk to the restaurant.

Thank Michaela W
