Good food at decent prices. While it's not the finest dining you'll do, I'm addicted to the Hariyali Nan they have. :)

We were staying just down the road from this restaurant and fancied some spicy food after expedition fayre during a Svalbard circum-navigation.
Thing started pleasantly enough very friendly waitress gave us a window table and got us a couple of Kingfishers and offered some water.
We ordered Muligatawny Soup and Mixed Vegetable Pakora as starters, there was a bit of a wait and we heard a neignbouring table send two lots of Chicken Pakora back as the centres were still frozen, after another attempt was also send back, the waitress said deep fryer was broken and they were being shallow fried, I worried about our Pakora. I needed have bothered because although my Mulagatawny was soon delivered piping hot, and edible my husband still hadn't got his Pakora 10 minutes later, when we chased it up we were told that it hadn't been entered at the till, so he just got some Pompadoms and by that time my soup had cooled.
For mains we had both ordered Jalfrezi, however the waitress suggested these may not be very spicy and that we might want one madras (not on the menu), we agreed and ordered with Nan bread, rice was included. After a long wait the dishes came to the table but they were almost identical, certainly it was difficult to detect any difference in spicing, we also didn't get the nan, so after 5 minutes we asked again. Then when we were almost finished the meal we told the waitress to just cancel the Nan, she said that she had actually forgot to ask for it!! but then when the plates were clear she came with a Nan bread that looked pizza bread, she said we could try it and wouldn't have to pay - we did taste a corner but it wasn't Nan bread as we know it, we did ask if they had a Tandori oven to do the bread but didn't really get an answer.
Instead we got a story of how there was only one chef from Nepal in the kitchen tonight and that was why things were different and that if she had enough money she would rather be in India. I should say although a bit plain the Curries were OK but not great She also said that Norwegans don't like spicy food so the madras wasn't that spicy, we should have asked for a Vindaloo also not on the menu.
Beers were the equiv of £12 each, expensive even for Norway..
At least when it came to paying the things we hadn't had were not on the bills and there was no automatic service charge.
That's when we were leaving the Waitress said, "i hope you find a better restaurant next time", it wasn't hard.

Despite the location of this place, with its shabby neighbors, shall we say, we love to go here to eat before concerts and operas. Especially crazy about their Palak Paneer! The spinach and cheese sauce is simply perfect. It is served with rice. Add Naan bread. They also make a fresh fruit mango smoothy that is out of this world.
The service is also quite good, unlike the average dinner spot in Norway. If you have to leave by a certain time, you can let them know and they do their best to make it possible. No complaints from me!

Classic indian food in a classic indian resturant. Curry and nan ca 200kr. Not the very best in town but the best resturant close to the opera house and train station.

After two weeks of Norwegian food, we were very interested in eating something spicy. Restaurants are very expensive in Norway, so we opted for the plate lunch at this restaurant. The food was tasty but not very spicy. We weren't given the option of choosing more spice with the more affordable (99 kroner or $20) lunch.
