Hailing from the uk were used to some excellent currys but this was far from it.

The service was ok but i object to paying 3 euros for sitting down. This is probally to cover the snacks on the table.

The heat was ok but the sauce was watery; a bit like bristo with curry powder(wheres the cream or cornflower?) and the nan while tastly was flat more like a chapati.
With a beer each and a starter it was 35 euro.

We stumbled upon this restaurant accidentally and after reading the reviews on tripadvisor decided to go for lunch. The restaurant is situated on a street where not that many people pass by, so you wont find a bunch of people in it unlike the restaurants near the Duomo, which was nice since there were only 3 occupied tables counting ours. The place is decorated very tastefully and the kitchen has glass so you can see how clean they are. We ordered something with chicken (cant remember the name) and a beer and everything was absolutely delicious! The waiter was very kind, however we did have to wait some minutes to be seated because he was no where to be found. The total check for what we ordered was 37€ (1 litre beer, 2 main plates, 1 dessert and 1 espresso), which in my opinion was great considering the proportions of food served! We went for lunch so some prices are lower than at other hours, but even the non-lunch menu was 20€ or less a plate. Overall it was great and I will more than definitely come back and recommend this place!

Been there twice already in a span of 3 weeks. Ordered the essentials from lamb, chicken, a variety of lentil and lady's finger, a couple of varieties of biriyani. The food was excellent. The owner is a very friendly guy ( loves to talk) the lone waiter there probably is in the shadow of this dude so he doesn't get to express much or interface much with the customers. Do not expect your meal in a jiffy it might take a while but the wait is usually worth it. Definitely a must visit for any non native connoisseurs also for any Indian missing home.

If you are into Indian food then I would recommend you to go here irrespective of what I have mentioned below, coz the food is nice.

We were welcomed to a largely empty restaurant, since. Went there early for dinner, by an eccentric looking waiter. He was welcoming but a little strange and expressed surprise at the quantity of food ordered by me and my wife, which was not a lot by any stretch of the imagination. Also, the service was slow even when we were the only people in the restaurant. This place has just one waiter/attendant.

The food was fresh and full of flavour. Indian varieties of beer are served here.

By the time we left there were quite a few tables occupied.

Everyone who likes Indian food and who visits Milan needs to go to this restaurant! The food was delicious, full of flavour and so much choice for vegetarians. My boyfriend and I were craving something different to pizza or pasta after a week in Italy so decided to search out this place. It was well worth the walk. The waiter was extremely helpful when ordering food and was very chatty and friendly throughout the meal. We had two spinach mains and the vegetarian starters selection. All of the dishes were outstanding and not too heavy. They were good value for money and we were well satisfied when finished. The meal was also topped off with some lovely mouth fresheners.
