It’s nice restaurant quite close to from Tivole and the city center of Copenhagen. It’s very good Indian restaurant! The food is really excellet! Soups and main cources are really good ones but dessert was not so good one but that’s not so important.

Excellent south indian option. The best INDIAN food in scandinavia. A couple of things though - Idli and Vada were served without Sambar and chutney. There was a clear difference in the service by one of the staff (who unfortunately at our table) as against...More
