“Delicious, authentic, nice change from pasta”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Wow! The first thing you will notice when walking in is the gorgeous smell of fresh spices - yum!! The decor inside the restaurant is beautiful too. Staff were friendly and attentive, and drinks were reasonably priced compared to more tourist-y italian restaurants. Clientele seemed more like locals, there were no other tourists there.

The menu had lots of reasonably priced options. Starters were around 2-4eur, there were 2 pages of vegetarian mains and plenty of meat dishes too. Rice was a bit on the pricey side at 4eur for plain basmati, but one portion was enough to share between two people. Naans started at 2eur. We had Zeera Aloo (5eur) and Chicken Tikka Masala (9eur). Both were delicious!! Would definitely return.

“Best Indian food since India!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This restaurant offers a wide selection of genuine Indian food including lots of vegetarian options. It was by far the best Indian food I have had since traveling in India. We went twice during our stay in Florence as a break from pasta and pizzas! I highly recommend it.

“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......
