Quite authentic Indian food for acceptable prices

Why do I say "acceptable" prices, the prices are actually too high compared with the performance of size of dishes and taste. I can say that cause I am going here regularly over the last five years now and they did not improve but rather rely on the regular clients but other places show better... read more

I'm not sure if it was the food we ordered but it seemed a little underwhelming a stodgy after the amazing decoration of the restaurant.

Four of us went for lunch and ordered typical indian food - a bit oily but the taste was authentic. The restaurant is large and very well decorated; they were specially prepared for Diwali ( Indian festival) that was on 11th November. We were told that the chinese owner also had another Indian restaurant called " Ganesha". We had eaten... More

Loved the decor! Staff doesn't speak english but they seemed nice. Food was quite average in my opinion. A little bit of a let down. The dishes were too sweet. I was expecting something a little bit spicier. I don't think I'd visit ti again.

Great restaurant with a lot of things on the menu. We got a big menu for 3 people with a lot of small dishes. Every dish had 'an alternative' you could choose instead. In that way are you able to create your dinner just the way you want it. The food was great, the staff is polite, the restaurant is... More

I visited this restaurant few times during my stay in Nanjing - every dish I tried was delicious - starting from different sorts of curry/masala, grilled vegetables, noodles to delicious mango lassi. Very nice design of the interior, you can sit on traditional chairs or on the floor on the pillows. The only drawback is long waiting time for service,... More

But every next time I hade an impression that owner is too much focus on business then on customer demands. Prices become not competitives, dishes seems to be reduces in amount and my feeling was - other restaurant are... More

I visited this one and also the restaurant they have near Xuanwu lake (Ganesh I think). The food at both was very good especially if you ask for spicy. The beer selection was surprisingly good and they have a good mix of German and Belgian beers, as well as the usual and Kingfisher.
