This is the place to go for a good indians night out. Near the Alex City Centre, this restaurant serves probably the best indian food in alexandria in their comfy, quiet but festive ambiance.

Taste food but not spicy as expected, its atmosphere let you feel at home with a nice welcoming from the staff happy to drink Indian tea with its exact taste

I didn't like their food at all .. The food was tasteless unlike the indian food at all .. I tried the biryani and butter chicken and i didn't like it.. I do like indian food but for sure am not going to this restaurant again.

The restaurant is situated upstairs and only has a very simple access. The interior is typically Indian, the food with the exception of the chicken tikka masala is not Indian, the lamb Rojan Josh was poor so were the nan breads. I actually doubt if there is an Indian chef in the Kitchen.
