“Worst Indian food in Munich”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Went to this place on a friends birthday and had the worst dinner possible. None of the dishes were cooked well and everything tasted bland. Lamb masala was like hard pieces of lamb in sour tomato soup. The jalfrezi was so terrible we had to order some other dish to finish our meal which was also not good. There was no hint of spice nor originality in the cooking.

“The blandest Indian food I've ever eaten; Slow service”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I never thought I'd equate "bland" with Indian food, but there's a first time for everything. Perhaps they cater to local tastes? (German food isn't exactly spicy, after all). The staff was alright; just not at all attentive. My dish was surprisingly bland, so I wanted to order something else and ask for more spice, but the waiter never came around after dropping off our food. We had to flag him down for the check when we were done. We waited about 20 minutes after we were done eating to get a chance to even ask for the check, and the place was practically empty, so go figure. My husband's entree was a little more flavorful, but still much more bland than we've had at the many Indian places we've eaten at around the world.

The bathrooms were OK as far as cleanliness, but there were no paper towels to dry my hands.

“Delicious and close to authentic”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

The restaurant is close walk from Marienplatz and is very inviting. The menu is exhaustive, the food delicious and the service good. It is clearly a very good Indian restaurant in Munich and comparable to other excellent Indian restaurants in europe.
