“Is there a cook at the helm?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

I struck out this fastfood from my usual list some one year ago. However decided to give another try just in case I was wrong.
I was right, they are not listening to the customers. I bought Murgh Makhani (chicken) , Gosht masala (mutton) and Fish jalpari and the plain nan. If the dishes were acceptable, the nans were simply an insult to tandoori cooking of nan. Either the trainee has been wrongly trained or else they are selling chewing gum for nan. I have seen better nan than this one. For sure this is my last visit there.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

Even though it offers a fast food decor, it has the best indian food in Mauritius. Real indian food and not indo -mauritian food. Price ok. Quite busy on weekends

“Good food - won't disappoint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

We liked the food. It was fairly similar to what you find in good indian restaurants around the world. Essentially, food won't disappoint!

Coming to ambiance it's more of a food court type set-up and not a typical restaurant. They have seating outside in the waterfront and can be uncomfy on really hot days.

“Best prawn curry I have ever tasted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2011

This little restaurant is hidden away in the waterside district. Not far from the Port Police Station. It backs on to the waterfront.
I ate outside on picnic type tables.
I have now had prawn curry on several occasions and it really is the best curry I have ever tasted in my 50 years travelling around.
Clean, fast service and the cheesy naan bread is to die for!
Prices ridiculously cheap.
Not sophisticated, just great food.
Not open Monday night
