I am a huge fan of Indian food and usually disappointed, so I was pleasantly surprised to find some that is so good in HCMC They have 2 floors, so go in even if it looks crowded. There is plenty for vegetarians and meat eaters....More

We went here after we've visited the restaurant in Hoi an and was not disappointed. The food was awesome as usual and the service was amazing. You also get free water and dessert! You should definetly make a visit to this restaurant!

Reviews don't lie. I have to recomend this restaurant. Their food worth for their price. Service was very nice. I tasted Aloo Gobi with garlic naan-fantastic. Try mango fresh juice-real mango inside.

I honestly didn't care.
What would be the best rooms for quiet nights sleep. We are travelling with a group of 8 and not worried about noise during the day, but want good nights sleep. Thank you.
