I've been coming here for a while and am slowly making my way through the menu. The best things I've had here so far are the lamb biryani, both tandoori, the naan, and the masala chai (tea). If I'm honest, the curries are a touch...More

Eating out in Gwangju can be a bit tricky for vegetarians as it’s difficult to know what is in Korean food. Finding this restaurant was a result as the menu is in English and the owner speaks good English. Prices are reasonable also. Worth a...More

Extremely kind service, delicious Indian food, and a lovely atmosphere in a bustling shopping area. We ate here (& drank soju!) twice in our two-week visit - there really is not much for vegetarians to eat in South Korea especially Gwangju!

For me, this is the go to place for Indian food. The food is very good, especially the Mutton Curry. The staff is always friendly, and it's also a great place for kids.

I had lunch at this restaurant and it was okay. The tandoori mutton was a bit chewy but the paneer nan was very good. The staff was friendly but in my opinion a bit too occupied with their mobile phones and internal chit-chat, the guests...More
