“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Being English we enjoy a nice Indian now and again. We booked a table at this restaurant because some reviews said the food was great. We found the food to be very poor in that the curry was over sweet and the rice was greasy and salty. The onion bhajis were actually just battered onion rings... no diced onion with the popodoms. The popodoms were given to my wife on one plate and the onion rings served to me. I don`t know why they did not understand that we expected these as a starter and that we would want to share the food. I felt afterwards, after not being able to eat it, that I had just flushed a chunk of money down the toilet.

“Many pluses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Starting with the big negative, it's more expensive than most. Pros: the food is excellent and in good portions. The atmosphere inside is pretty and outside has a nice view. The service is quick, friendly, and helpful. It may be a little hard to find from the street, but it's the best Indian in town. When you add it all up, it's a good night out.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

The food was ok, well done and the menu has besides the classics some specialties. I ate well and was happy to have had my beloved Roghan Gosht with some plain naan and fragrant jasmine rice. I didn't mind the decor but the service and in the end the bill was not so funny. Still, good food.

“You're not in Heidelberg anymore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012 via mobile

You've been transported to India. Not sure what's better- the food, service or drink menu. If you need a break from German cuisine and are looking for a little splurge, this is definitely
The place for you!

“Good food but not good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

I ate here with two friends on a recent visit to Heidelberg. We were in the mood for Indian food and decided to try this restaurant based on good reviews. The location is nice, right on the river, and the atmosphere is set up to feel more "upscale" but felt like it was trying and not that it really was upscale.

Service was good and the food was too. It wasn't as spicy as restaurants I've been to in the United States or India itself, but was pretty good. Prices were on the high end, starting at around 18 euro per dish.
