Stopped by while on roadtrip, easy to find, kind people, reasonable priced - but most important; yummy, authentic indian food! Will stop again!

Very nice authentic Indian place, luckily a person on the street told us about this place as it is not in the tourists area. Very good food and reasonable price, but all is expensive in Norway

Food was authentic and taste was good. We had lamb curry and shrimps in spicy tomato based gravy. Portions are generous. Price : is above average compared with prices of Indiana food if you eat in Asia. But eating out in Norway is expensive. The...restaurant should have a better signage to have better visibility. Otherwise, overall good service. Ambience : simple, clean and spacious eatery.More

Went here for dinner early in January. Many guests, but not too crowded. The waiter was attentive and we didn't have to wait for our drinks. Our tikka masalas (strong Norwegian level) were served ca. 20 min later, but before that we had finished a...delicious 1st. dish on the house. We found the dinner both tasty and spicy ;-) and that is what we came for. The atmosphere is more like a cafe, the refrigerates are placed in the restaurant, not in the kitchen, and the restaurant had too bright lightning......, more suitable for families than romance?More

Come here with my family fairly often and we always enjoy it. Family owned and operated Indian restaurant. The service varies, depending on how many customers there are at any given time, but it is always friendly. We are usually three generations, ranging in age...from 8 to 68. They always do well on the spice level, no matter what dishes we choose. The adults like spicy food, while the kids prefer mild, and we always leave happy and satisfied.More

The place may look a bit dated but the food is very tasty. If you are Norwegian: choose the Norwegian spice level, everything above that is too hot to handle - speaking from experience. We had prawn biryani with two types of naan bread, especially...the naan with nuts and fruit is SO GOOD! Also, if you decide on something spicy, make sure to order mango lassi on the side. The yoghurt will neutralize the spice and it's a delicious drink in itself. For dessert we had something typical Indian which I don't remember the name of - it was some green ice cream with whipped cream and sauce which was to be honest a little too strange for our liking. Overall we had a good experience here and we would recommend this place to anyone who likes tasty and affordable Indian food.More

Sorry for the incident. It usually does not happen. I have to take it up with the stuff. We promise to get better:)

I had the pleasure of dining here with my family and I was really surprise by the quality of the food. They had great service as well which is not given at a restaurant in norway. Generous portions and value for money!
