“Lovely spicing and welcoming owner”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed a break from the Italian food delights for some spice. Large vegetarian choice and one of the best dahls I've had outside India. We shared 3 veg mains, a rice and naan with 2 soft deinks for €31. As we left we were unsure of how to find our way to the main town so the owner gave us a map and talked us through the route we needed to take.

“Great Staff - very kind and helpful”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice meal - right amount of spice - very nice service in copper ware. Super special attention to birthday celebrations - different and great! The only thing is we stunk of fried food - there must be something wrong with the ventilating system......

“A nice taste of spice and change from pasta”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Travelling for several weeks now and wanted a change from pasta and pizza. Happened upon this Indian restaurant near town center. Happily surprised at the pleasant service, and good food. Ordered chicken Tikka Masala, Aloo Gobi, Pakoras, Samosas, rice and garlic naan. All went down very well and it was a nice change. It is next door to a good Mexican restaurant as well, called Tijuana Mex. Tried them both with positive results.

“Average Indian Food With Great Host, Mr. Umar”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We visited this place to eat Indian food as we wanted to try authentic indian food.
1. Well, the food is average in taste. We ordered Aloo Jeera ( it was with Gravy!), Paneer Makhani (No taste), Dal Makhani, Butter Chicken (Good taste), Chicken Kadhai (OK), Naans (Good), Veg. Pulao (Good) etc.
2. At the same time, while food was pretty average , the experiance was made meorable by the host, Mr. Umar Hayat. Hes originally from Pakistan. He really stricked conversation with us and took very good care of us, with his warm hospitality. We even met his family, & lovely kids.
3. We were in a hurry and food came really fast and seved very well.
4. The price is not on higher side and each dish is around avg Euro 8.
5. So I suggest to visit this place to meet its host Mr. Umar Hayat and not so much for the food.
