Asked for spicy and they delivered! The staff were cool, very helpful and smiley although there were a lot of them. But the owner. He just sat there drinking and starring at us. Made us feel uncomfortable and was intimidating to us and the staff even they seemed scared of him! Nothing worse! Felt like I was in a zoo!... More

I live since 1 year in Saigon, and I love indian food. I tried several places but this is my favorite. Last week tried the fish-mango curry and it was amazing! The portions are big, the staff is super friendly and location is very good! I recommend it to all indian food lovers!

The quality of food and service is always the same here: AMAZING. I've tried most of the non-vegan starters ie the kebabs etc and a few curries but my favourite is the butter chicken.

We were at this restaurant last week and had lunch. It is located in a narrow street. The food and the service was good at decent prices. The staff too were very friendly. However, their wash room was too stinky and the kitchen next to it did not look hygienic at all!

We were in Ho Chi Minh for 3 days and ate here twice. Great food and excellent service. They provide lots of sauces to your table as well as rice pudding after your meal.
