It took quite a while before the staff discovered us waiting to be seated and about 12 minutes before a waiter appeared. We made it quite clear to the waitress that if this was the way they took care of their guests we could just leave right now. We got a lot of excuses, but the service improved from lousy to average or maybe good at the end. We were actually too hungry to leave and find a better place.

Ordinary Indian food, "medium" is actually somewhat "hot".

Overall rating has to be "poor", keep clear of this place, there are a lot of better restaurants within one minute's walk.

Visited this place together with my family. It started out by the restaurant having messed up our reservation. It simply wasn't there even though it was confirmed. The staff solved this real quick though.

After we were seated we got some menus. But there was no one to take our order. After about 30 minutes we managed to flag someone down to take a drink order (the waiter didn't know the names of the beers they had in the menus or the aperitifs they were offering so we had to show them in the menu that they actually did offer them there) and when we got the drinks they looked horrible. Nevertheless, after another 30 minutes we managed to flag down another waitress that took our food order. One person in our group wanted appetizers as his main meal which isn't normally an issue anywhere - they just bring it out when they serve the other dishes for the rest of the group. But not at this place. The waiter (whichever it was - never the same guy or girl) could not understand why we wanted to send the food back - it was an appetizer which is always served before the main course.

Eventually the waiter agreed and brought it back to the kitchen to keep warm until the rest of us got our food. As a side note we could see that the very same appetizers were served to a different table. Kind of weird. After another hours wait we finally got our food. The food was ok, but mine wasn't spicy enough and my poor grandma was served something that probably set her intestines on fire even though it was supposed to be mild. We urged her to send it back but considering we had waited for little more than two hours to eat she ate it anyway. Didn't ask how she fel the day after though.

Also - people who have allergies need to beware of this place. Some items in the menu are marked as containing milk. Some of them aren't but still contain milk. Be very specific and have the waitstaff make a note, but easiest would be to go somewhere else.

I for one will not go back to Indian side and will never recommend this place to anyone else. There's a reason they have so many spots available on their patio. Screwed up order, wait times and rudeness won't gain any customers. Trust me when I say - go somewhere else.

We usually try to avoid eating at spots obviously catering to tourists, and most often we check tripadvisor before sitting down, but sometimes we give in to hunger. This tends to lead to disappointment, and this was certainly the case here. if you want bland, tasteless, watery Indian food painted with food colouring (for not too much money), this is the place for you. I bet you don't though.

Very nice location in Lilla Torg. Service was decent but was average or below average, infact it was bit disappointing. Servings are bit confusing from typically Indian Meal point of view, it is neither an al carte nor a set menu.

Was at this restaurant with a colleague for dinner. Centrally located, in a very nice area and with extremely nice seating. Staff was very courteous through out the service and is a plus!

It took nearly 30 minutes for our order to arrive. Well presented and looked good. Tasted okay. But both myself and my colleague had that 'gastric / acidic' feeling in our stomachs through out the night and did not dare to go there again.

Will not recommend this place for authentic 'indian food' experience.
