They are enormous. And quite good. Dined here recently and plan to visit again before leaving Rome. The chicken tikka masala is... More

My husband and I took my mother-in-law here and did not have the best experience. The Dal was off. They insisted that it is cooked fresh (because I know they serve it often in an Indian restaurant) but the lentils themselves had expired. I'm very familiar with food as I am a chef, and yes lentils do expire. Also the... More

My expectations on Indian food outside of India is generally pretty low, but this place was a pleasent surprise. The Veg Biryani and the Samosas I had here was excellent, and surpassed my expectations by miles. Definitely a decent restaurant to try out.

We went to this lovely restaurant during our visit to the colosseum. For 16 euros we had a starter, a main meal and desert and it was well worth the price. We have had many indian meals all over thr globe and we rank this the best! Staff were friendly and answered any questions we had about the art.

Neighborhood Profile
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 Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
