Came here with two friends. Ate one of the set menus. Really good service, and really tasty food. We sat inside, which has a very cosy vibe. The place was spotless also.

Good cost-benefit ratio for classic Indian food in an exotic neighborhood. It is worth to visit again.

Thank Rafaelfeldmann
Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
