Excellent food, huge portions and great service! The staff very very friendly and made sure that the food had just the right amount of spice. We were a group of nine and we all enjoyed our food!

I made a brief visit to this small, cozy Indian restaurant before the departure of my train, and I gotta say, I was actually impressed by it. The food was surprisingly delicious and the staff was super friendly and talkative. Extra points for fresh naan...bread and a tasty dessert. If I had had more time I would've stayed here longer for sure!More

I can confirm the quality and excellent taste of food served here. When compared with other indian restaurants, I visited, this one is clearly the best in terms of taste balancing. Here you can taste a perfect blend of all the intended flavours. Secondly, the...service was excellent. We were dining there during weekend, so lunch menu was not available. But still we were offered seconds (they were not needed as the amount of food was perfectly enough). Also the waiter was attentive and informed us that if the food is too spicy or too mild he could exchange it for a different version, more adjusted to our taste. Again this was not needed as the food was perfectly balancedMore

We happen to have chosen the right restaurant, cozy, not very big only about 6 4 person tables but the service is excellent and fine Indian dining. Knowledgeable about the food, patient service and taking the time to explain and great help in choosing the...menu selections, flexible in adjusting the spiciness of the ingredients. Absolutely when we travel to Oulu again we will it at the same place. Thanks for the great experience.More

While hunting for an Inidan Lunch thanks to Google we landed up at this place. We had a great vegetarian lunch and Owner Mr. Rawat went out of the way to make us comfortable. We enjoyed his hospitality and the whole team took care of...our needs. It was a great experience and would love to go back to this restaurants if I lad up there again in Oulu. Keep it up. You made our day.More

a small restuarant - not busy when I visited but with speedy service and tasty food. I came away feeling full after the inclusive meal - poppadum, choice of starters and main courses with water, small dessert and tea/coffee. Recommended.

The restaurant is not big, but has a great atmosphere and is perfect for a family dinner. The food was great, the staff recommended several dishes which were perfect! The service was really good. We are going back for sure the next time we visit...Oulu.More

I happened to try a couple of Indian restaurants in the town, garam masala for sure is the best. The taste was close to the authentic one (hard to find the real taste outside of India/Pakistan). Service was good and ambience was excellent.
