My husband and I love this place and go often. The fish pakora are our current favourite but everything is good. Nice clean restaurant. Good for eating in or take out. The prices are reasonable, considering its Cochrane and not always very busy. Hope they're around for a long time!

Finally a lamb Vindaloo with appropriate heat selections! We got one level down from 'extreme' and it was great. Very tasty Nam breads. The rice was made with real saffron. The other dishes were very flavorful. I would gave preferred more spice in the veg and also meat samossas. Budget $25 per head if you are hungry plus drinks. We have eaten a lot of Indian over the years and will return here for sure.

Excellent service - friendly and helpful. Strip-mall restaurant, but it was very clean and comfortable. The food was outstanding, the Lamb Vindaloo was hot/spicy and the meat was very lean and tender. The food star, for me, was the Clay Oven baked Chicken Tikka Achari - melt in your mouth. I would recommend their lunch buffet so that you can try a bit of everything.

Awesome food and friendly service. The dinner for one has three selections plus rice, naan, and dessert. Ask them to make it completely veg! Let my photo speak for itself! Yummmmm

Called in for the Sunday buffet here whilst on holiday from the UK. The buffet represents very good value for money as it's an all you can eat dish.

I regularly eat Indian food at home where it's as popular as Mexican food is in the US and Canada, (perhaps more so as we have a large contingent of Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi families living there).

The pilau rice was a little dry, but I was very pleased with the rest of the dishes on offer. The Beef in the Rogan Josh was very soft and delicious and the Chicken Vindaloo was nicely spiced, ie you could still taste the food, (back in the UK Vindaloo is too spicy for many palates).
Their onion bahjis were small and delicate, and I was happy to see Kingfisher beer on offer.

For me though the star of their show was the divine Naan bread. I love Naan bread anyway, and it usually comes in large tear shaped rounds at home. The Mehatb version was much thinner, cut into slices and well toasted to a crisp outer shell. I loved it and asked for more.

The staff are extremely polite and friendly, and I would definitely return here.
