We ate here twice in two days because we liked the Indian food so much. The palak paneer is delicious! My husband is from India so we know good Indian food. If only we could find this good food at home in the USA!

Used to be fantastic when it first opened but has gone down hill in food quality, which is a shame as we eat there every time we are in FJ but I think next time we will give it a miss

They do serve a kind of fusion Indian food which can be said to have some 'north Indian' type dishes. But it is quite basic & not very authentic. Considering it is in a very remote area, it suffices. S.G.Aney
