“Place for Tasty Indian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

This place we visited when i was there last time in Lusaka, We had a get together of all expatriates working for our company. The ambiance was good , the menu was exhaustive and bar has got collection of wines . The food was tasty but very Oily and the service OMG, was terribly slow with many times the waiters were not understanding what exactly we wanted.

Overall a good place for Indian food not the best place and economical also.

“Good, tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Have seen this restaurant and for some reason of other not visited it....but went there last week and the food was excellent! Each dish has its own taste- sometimes you can find that all dishes can taste the same. Their Naan Bread is just the best! Very authentic and am definitely going to make it a regular!
Great value for money too.

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

I wasn't sure if I would review it "average" og "very good", but it's something in between. I've been there a couple of times with a friend, and the food is always great! The service is unortunatly not at the same standard. They don't always get your orders and they can be a bit slow.
But the menu is quite veried, so you got lots to choose between and it's always tasty.
Will def. go there again.
I've been going there around lunch times, and it's always qiuet

“good indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We visit Zambia 2 to 3 times a year and this is our favourite Indian restaurant in Lusaka. We usually sit outside. The service is quick and friendly. The waiter gave us good advice when we wanted to try something new. The food is authentic, great tasting and good value for money. I recommend this restaurant to lovers of Indian cuisine!

Ate here when staying at nearby backpackers. Food is great and the staff match. The location is convenient although the house setup a little strange
