“Not worth the money”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

A little hard to find Apsara is very close to Savannah and a neighbor a Tamnak Thai restaurant. We initially visited Tamnak but there was no one to entertain us and the restaurant was empty most likely because we visited a little to early to dine around 5:20pm. Apsara was happy to receive us even though they open at 6:00pm. They made us feel special. Another couple who seemed to dine regularly at Apsara came in 6:00pm. We were there until 6:30 and only two tables occupied definitely looks like not many dine this early. The ambiance was nice and cool. Good service too. The food was average to good but not at all worth what we paid for. Also, a couple of mosquitoes were dining on my blood (legs) under the table. I had to use the mosquito repellent to keep them away. The food we ordered paneera tikka masala TT$ 85.00 the paneer had not absorbed the flavor of tikka masala at all and tasted bland. Chana Peshawari TT$ 75.00 very average to taste. Sada Naan TT$ 30.00 and Lacchedaar Paratha TT$ 35 very good! Raita TT$ 35.00 OK. Coconut water TT$ 18.00 and the most expensive water I've ever had Fiji water bottle 1L TT$ 40.00 (~7 USD). Service charge and taxes TT$ 90.00. Either the food flavors and textures have to go up or the prices has to be marked down.

“Authentic Indian”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Excellent Indian food. Staff is very friendly and you can get most of the Indian dishes. Slightly on the expensive side and the location is not scenic.

“Authentic Indian Experience”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Some work could be done on the outside of the building. The décor inside, while rustic and charming could use a hint of freshness and newness. The service was a bit slow and it seem like there was a understaffing problem. The food was tasty, spicy, and was thoroughly enjoyed. It was possibly the best authentic indian food I've tasted so far. Although the prices was higher than I expected, the food was worth it.
