As a British Indian wanting some authentic Indian food after a couple of weeks of travelling, I was craving a good couple of dishes and eating in good quantity. Unfortunately, rice was at an extra cost to the over-priced main dishes, which I thought would be complimentary given their prices. Furthermore, ordering naan at €3 a pop when the ingredients...

We kept our expectations low after reading the reviews here and braced ourselves for terrible service. We were pleasantly surprised. Service all over Italy in the past 5 weeks that we have been here has been cold and hasty. At Sarla, the waiter was attentive and everything arrived in reasonable time with no hiccups. We ordered veggie samosas, butter chicken,... More

I was there two years ago with a good friend from India. We had a really good time. The food was excellent and my friend confirmed that it really tasted Indian. So, after trying a few other places, I decided to come back with my children (8 and 6) and another friend, an Indian born and raised in the UK.... More

Horrible experience. After trying to find it in alleys, we found that the staff was almost reluctant to serve. No one in the restaurant at 7.30 in the evening. When aaked for drinks menu the waiter was just rude. Got so disgusted with the attitude that we walked out.

We travelled a couple of weeks back in a group of 4. The staff at Sarla (lead by their owner Mr Shekhar Reikhi) are extremely welcoming. They made sure we got the best table especially as we were tired from shopping the whole day! The relaxed cool tone of the place complements its hot, delectable food. All 4 of us... More

It"s not easy to find this restaurant in the darkness, but well worth the effort, when you get there. The food is excellent an also the choice of wine to go with it was perfect. Nice atmosphere and smily waiters. Enjoy!😃

We found this restaurant as it is close by to our hotel. It's Indian cuisine and ideal when you want something other than Italian food. The restaurant itself doesn't look like much inside or out, and the man who owns it is a little on the grumpy side but the food is nice. It's not outstanding but it's okay :-)

Reasonably decent restaurant with traditional Indian culture ambiance. Manager who refers himself as DON was welcoming and suggested few dishes. Its a bit in secluded place , we took a while to find it. Follow google maps.

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
