Been here a couple of times and the restaurant always delivers. Great service, the Indian food is better than more restaurants back home (UK). Would recommend all travellers to come and check this place out.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. My son and I had Mutton Biryani and my hubby tried the Prawn Biryani - absolutely delicious. The service was pretty good, too. This is the place for curry dishes in Ho Chi Minh City!
