Over rated reviews. Disappointed as it has minimal flavors for ‘Indian’ food. Taste was not authentic enough

My second visit with friends. We had double extra cheese tarik naan and and cheesy banana fritters. Fast service while ordering and owner was very friendly. Have to go early because we have to wait for tables coz lots of customers waiting for their queue....Most of foods are highly recommended. Because of their foods really attract us to come at first time.More

Situated at Green Hill Road, one of the popular Kuching Indian Restaurant ; with strong-look logo ie. Golden lion holds an sword. Banana leaf used to serve foods attract many customers' attention.

Good tasty food, small menu that keeps waiting times down. Garlic naan, biryani, tandoori and aloo gobi all tried and we're very good.

Have been here many times. Owner Damith is the perfect host and premises is clean and brightly lit. It's become quite the busy place to locals and backpackers alike. We love the tandoori chicken, butter chicken, lamb shank and briyani rice. Wife and daughter enjoy...the cheesy banana fritters. I rave over the cheesy naans!More

Well-known for its double cheese naan, which was very amazing. The biryani rice was amazing too, tho the teh tarik wasn't as great as we expect. Either way, it is a lovely shop to hang around with friends for dinner. The waiters were polite and...amazing too.More

If you like Indian food with a new twist, try this place. People line up to be able to sit at one of the tables to try the house special: Nan Bread filled with cheese. I know it sounds weird but it's actually very tasty,...gooey and delicious when dipped in the curry sauce provided. Be aware that cheese filled naan is VERY filling and since other plates are also good and tasty, you should not order too much of it. The lamb shank is also delicious and of a good portion (can be shared by 2). The service is on the quick and rough side but we enjoyed every moment of it, for the novelty, the food quality and the unbeatable price for the size of the portions and the very original and delicious drinks (without alcohol). Go and try it ! It's open late.More

Nice authentic Indian as well as Malay food very courteous owner & good service. However very crowded, poor ambience & quite noisy. Also quite expensive in terms of location & ambience, poor value for money. Suggest look for other better options plenty in Kuching
