I have visited the restaurant 3 times, once occurred business lunch is not served Saturday. First time for vegetarian lunch I have been offerred plenty of different pieces of spicy delicious dishes. After some time the offer of vegetarian lunch changed and consisted only of different sauces for bread (nevertheless I love Indian bread). Very hot (I started to cry) and pretty tasty, but just forms of sauce.
Restaurant is small indeed, but cosy.

Wasn't expecting much, so this met my expectations.

One of a few places to eat near ULB near General Jacques. Small place with about 15 tables. Brightly decorated with tables almost too close to one another.

A variety of menus, but for at least two people (no solos). The business lunch menu that was advertised on their website wasn't offered on Saturday. As I was by myself, the menus were not available. Would have liked to have tried one.

So I had a mixed fried vegetable starter (selected by the chef). The normal things that you would expect and a bit on the dry side. Seemed that they were previously cooked and heated up. The sauces that came with them weren't really to my taste. There was a light green concoction that was the only one that passed.

Main course was a lamb curry (Roganjosh). I found it very good. Lamb was tender and spices very nice. Best part of the meal. Came with a cooling side salad that looked like a yogurt dressing over cucumber and carrot sticks. Nan appeared to be out of a package rather than made on site. Basmati rice was as expected.

There wasn't anything wrong with the place, but it was just average. I wouldn't go back – there are too many other places in the world to try.

'As good as you'll find in Brussels for Indian' food is not necessarily a compliment! But the food is very good. If this restaurant was in London, it would be just alright, good enough.

The basic lunch menu has always been excellent considering the price.

Nice staff, amazing flower arrangements!

Agra is quite far away from the city centre, so it takes time to get there. The restaurant is decorated in Indian style, but not the best for sure. The food is so and so. I had classic Chicken Tikka Masala. Something was missing actually in the meal, the taste was not real Indian, and the quantity was not so big. Naan was OK, though I ate better. Service is OK, thanks also to the fact that only two tables were occupied - one of the two being mine. Prices are slightly higher than they should be. I will not go there again - not inspiring at all.

I go to Agra often with friends or colleagues and it's truly the best Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant I have been to in Brussels. The daily lunch is excellent and at an extremely good price (8.5 Euros for 3 different dishes, which change from day to day, so there's always something new to taste) The service is extremely friendly, completely different from most Belgian restaurants and the atmosphere is very cozy. Best to reserve in advance.
