There are so many better places to eat in this area. There is no atmosphere in here and the staff are not very welcoming. The starter portions were very small and the poppadoms were also small and had no taste. The pickle tray was taken from another table, who knows how long it been there. The main courses were no...

The Poppadoms were the ones you get from a supermarket that taste nothing like authentic ones.....and they were burnt. The sauce tasted like it came from a nuclear recycling plant! Onion Bahjis were two bite size pieces with lots of red colouring with 2 pieces of iceberg lettuce, a 3rd of a slice of tomato and a piece of cucumber.... More

Not exactly a taste of India. I doubt that any of the personell come from that country either. Still, quite decent nan breads, good rice. The main dishes I tried (chicken masala and lam vindaloo) did not taste to the standard expected for indian restaurant. Not the right spices, not hot enough, etc. Still, not too bad experience, just not... More

Good service and well presented food but very bland for Indian cuisine. Good choice presented - I only visited once, so perhaps other choices might have been better.

Went here as we couldn't find anything that we all wanted to eat - it was awful. We had top wait ages to be served and then the food was very salty and not at all pleasant. Service was poor and took a long time. I would not recommend.

I had lunch and this was the worst chicken tikka masala ever. Lunch seems to be a big thing in Sweden en you get good lunches for around 100 Sek. This was a big rip off and I am sure you will have to look very carefully to find worse Indian food than this. Lunch is self service but there... More

I went to the restaurant this evening and ordered a vegetarian dish. The menu claimed it was a spicy dish with aubergines, cauliflower, carrots and potato. What actually turned up (after a considerable wait) was a small bowl of watery, tasteless sauce with under cooked veggies that had been thrown in. The sauce tasted like salty veg stock and not...
