Title really says it all, but have to mention a few specifics. The Boti Mutton is possibly the best lamb/mutton dish I've ever had, the spicing, the cook on the meat absolutely first class. The mutton korma however, while excellent was not a korma to my mind. It reminded me more of a gosht kata masala, with that fairly spicy... More

Mixted feeling : everything grilled ( kebab, nan, etc) very good fully home made and tasty. Lentles and cottage cheese good while being a bit missing taste and then come the curry which was for me average. Good service but over all quite pricy (420 rmb for lunch for 2 persons / 25 rmb each nan !!). Over all we... More

The food is good.. Close to what you get in India. The place was over crowded because of a big group of tourists. Other than that everything was perfect.

Lovely restaurant in Shanghai. We ordered Dahl Makhani, palak paneer, aloo gobi, jeera rice, garlic naan, rashmi kebab and traditional lemon soda. The meal came with complimentary onion pickle and mint chutney. Plenty of food for four of us. Couldn't fault the dishes. Tasty and authentic and a atmosphere as well! We left with empty plates, full bellies and would... More

Decent Indian restaurant popular amongst western tourists. Can't go wrong if you are a vegetarian. Just ask the friendly staff who would be happy to rustle up to your requirements. Veg kadai with man bread was fantastic. The cool docks also has live jazz band artists performing. Excellent ambient atmosphere just a few minutes walk from the bund. Thoroughly recommend... More

Much better management than before but still the curries are ruined by poor quality meat. Lots of fat on red meat and no breast meat in chicken dishes.

Staying in South Bund

Neighborhood Profile
South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on than people expected, every year something new and exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of excellent quality that serve as anchors, and multiple annual events such as beer festivals, art and fashion fairs and music shows take advantage of the wide spaces, waterfront location and the tiny man-made beach to host huge crowds of people. Wandering about the newness, one can stumble upon authentic Chinese life in the stone gates of people’s residences or the street markets.
