“Great food & service”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We were looking here on TripAdvisor where to go to eat during our vacation in Mallorca, after the positive reviews on this Indian restaurant we chose to give it a too, and it was worth it. The moment we stepped inside the restaurant we were kindly welcomed. We were told that there is no a la carte menu, because they change it daily. You can either try half set menu or a complete set menu for 27 euros p.p. We went for the full menu, consisting of many Indian food variations, and we have no regrets, the flavors were intense and very tasty. We were also taken good care of, the staff was incredible friendly and with each meal they explained what it is made of and the origins of the recipe. We recommend to everyone to give it a try as well, but don't go on Monday's they have closed ;) Enjoy!!

“Very good quality and tasty food”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I have been looking a long time for a good indian restaurant in Palma de Mallorca and this is definitely the best.
The food is prepared from fresh ingredients and precooked like in many other restaurants.
They don't have a menu card, but you can choose from different plates, depending on what is fresh on that day.
The cook is not a hot food lover but it is always very tasty.
They offer a 15 Euro 3 course menu for Lunch which includes water, wine and dessert.
The full menu for dining is around 30.- which normally is more than you can eat.
The service is very good and friendly.

“Gourmet Indian Food Unlike Anything I've Ever Eaten!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I usually shy away from Indian food because of the stomach upset afterwards. But this culinary experience was SO extraordinary that I had to go back to eat dinner again two nights later! Everything was so fresh and flavorful, bursting with color and taste. And the service is wonderful. The chef explains every dish to you, and explains the rationale behind why he chooses certain herbs and spices to blend together. In top of that, you eat dinner surrounded by rose petals, fountains, and beautiful music. Do NOT miss this opportunity!
