“Back after a year or so...”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is a great little place, not your regular Indian restaurant and no Indian staff as far as I could see! That said, the food was excellent, the atmosphere is very relaxed, prices very reasonable and the staff were very friendly. We'll be back here soon, that's for sure. One tip though, try to get a table in the upstairs area as we got a howling freezing gale blow across our table each time the front door was open. Don't let this put you off though, try it out.

“Simply the best in the westend of Dundee !”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The title says it all! The food here is fantastic! Very tasty and does not bag you up like other Indian meals can. Reckon it's something to do with the ghee they put/use in their meals.
A very friendly cosy restaurant that is suitable to any occasion .

“Unusual Indian food”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Different from run of the mill places
Vartameen fish fry with dal is good
Usually place available unless weekends when reservation recommended
Not the best around but a good one to have different tats once on a wee while
Prawn items are good quality

“First impressions are good”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Had first meal here with friends on Sat night. It's certainly not huge but that can add to and enhance the atmosphere. Not sure there's many or any Indian people working here but the food was good. Service was ok and when the place emptied a bit later on the evening it was a nice place to hang around. Would like to visit again. Not too pricey either!!
