I am usually rather sceptical to going for an Indian in a country where Indian cuisine is almost unheard of - normally because of the lack of knowledge and availability of ingredients. However you don't need to worry here - I have been coming here since 2002. After having climbed an unusually high metal spiral staircase up to the restaurant you are greeted by friendly staff in one of two restaurant areas (do reserve on Friday or Saturday nights or in high season). There is a wide range of items on the menu including crocodile! The heat indicators on the menu are correct so don't go hotter because you think they are sparing tourists - they aren't. Everything I've ever had on the menu tastes brilliant and their naan bread is delicious. Would recommend the chicken balti. Decently priced and certainly in line with the cheaper end of good quality Tallinn restaurants.

We had one of the best Indian food experiences so far. We're not experts at this type of food, but travel quite a lot and simply enjoy good food and trying new restaurants when abroad. This place had most of the components you can expect considering you are not in India.:) The food was excellent, good portions -as the last thing you want is to leave the restaurant hungry!- , great value for the price, a really lovely atmosphere and good service. Considering that the place is located in the Old Town with loads of tourists, this restaurant in our opinion really manages to stand out positively from the crowd by being genuinely a good place to eat in, no tricks or overdoing it. Highly recommendable.

I'm a little surprised at some of the negative reviews, as my family thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. This is not your standard curry house, as some wonderful twists are done with Indian food. We ate lunch in the small courtyard on a beautiful afternoon. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing. The lentil soup is amazing - the best we have ever had!! I definitely recommend dining here while in Tallinn.

One the positive side they did something new with the indian crusine with adding moose and wild animals on the menu. The food was avrage, the service under avrage for Tallinn in our experience and the mango lassi was just not good at all!
