This place was conveniently located two blocks from my hotel (Acevi Villaroel). It was the first time my friend had tried Indian Food. The taste was a bit spicy for her but I thought this was very good food. The menu offered a nice variety plate where you could choose different dishes served with Naan bread or rice. Very inexpensive... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed March 18, 2017

My wife and I stumpled across this restaurant on our first night in Barcelona and so glad we did. We each had the 19 euro sampler meal which we highly recommend. The color, variety and taste were beyond measure. We are only in town for 4 nights and are seriously considering returning a second time. More

Whilst in Barcelona, at the end of a very long and tiring day sightseeing, we called into the local Indian restaurant.

Decent restaurant with decent food. I went here on night when I got tired of Tapas. Their set menu allows you to choose a couple things off their menu for a multi course dinner (1 started, 1 meat dish, 1 vegetable dish, bread or rice, and a dessert). Very accommodating and reasonable menu. The dishes was all pretty good, and... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
