“Delicious food and quaint service.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The food is really good at this place but it takes them a while to get everything ready. It is both family and couple friendly. I loved how polite the staff were. They paid attention to detail. I thought their customs were quaint. I wouldn't mind going back a second time to try the Tandoori chicken again. Transportation can be difficult if you try to use the Bole road. So I suggest you come from Meskel flower.

“Great Indian Food in a City with a lot of Options”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Eat here every time I'm in town. I like the paneer. There are also a lot of good appetizers. I also like the ambiance in an un-presuming way.

“Lassie was good, food was disappointing”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Because of recommendations in the lonely planet, we went to this Indian restaurant, but were very disappointed. The food was okay, but overpriced and certainly not as good as described in the book. I've visited Indian restaurants all over the world but wouldnt recommend this one. The service was not so good either.

“Was a decent place”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Used to be a good restaurant but seems like they are not very interested in running or maintaining the place.
Looks run down and poor compared to 2 years ago and service is terrible as always
