Its too bad the service is not as good as the food . The food keeps us coming back as very regular customers, but eventually the poor service and bad attitude of the servers will cause many patrons to go else where. Hopefully management will see this post .... I do not slander businesses without reason . Even good service... More

I was introduced to this fabulous place about 2 months ago from my co workers, it's the best butter chicken I have ever had, service is slow but very friendly staff, will be going back.

The butter chicken, naan and lamb with rice, the food was excellent but I asked to make sure that no cilantro was added, the server said, when I questioned her, oh yes I wrote it down but forgot to tell the kitchen staff. Not a good way to get a healthy tip.

The food was excellent. We had the vindaloo, butter chicken, mixed tandoori and rice. But our server was not so helpful. We had to flag him down to get any service and the food arrived sporadically. If I lived in Penticton it would be a great take away food restaurant

Not the most estheticly pleasing place but the food is excellent. The flavours of authentic Italian cuisine make ones mouth water just remembering our last visit.

My favorite world-food is Indian, but it's hard to get really good Indian food from any of their many provincial styles. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit and more re. flavors and service, but on the two times we visited, my wife and I both experienced upset sleep deep into the night. I will return to see if it... More

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
