Very good Indian food, menu is on the small side (which is good). The chefs special was excellent. Good service, friendly staff and pleasant restaurant all round. I will go again next time I am in Rome.

We ate here several years ago and were happy to see that the same lovely Indian restaurant was still here. I enjoyed the tandoori chicken and chana masala very much, and my husband had the vegetarian tasting menu.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
