“Pretty good Indian”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We ordered way too much food- for a curry house the portions were fairly generous. We started off with the popadam masala and were over the moon to be served a big pot of spicy mint sauce- a curry is not complete without it! The meals came out in minutes with the ping of the microwave which was a little disappointing. The 3 curries we ordered all looked and tasted very similar but no complaints really because they tasted good but as with all Indian curries in SE Asia- lacking those big flavours from a curry back home. The big, big chunks of chicken were really tender and the chicken tikka had a lovely taste. The soft naan was dripping with butter and covered in garlic- delicious! All this washed down with a cold beer Lao and a reasonable bill.

“To be avoided”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Show no cares for the food nor the customers !
Why should try it ?
If you are fed up with local food and want a change, there are decent French, Italian restaurants but the bills will be slightly higher :(
For Indian food, no choice : Jamil and Zahid's restaurant !
You will not regret to follow my "advice", I tell you

“Excellent Indian Food”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Liked: Authentic Indian food though not necessarily cooked by Indian Chefs, cost effective and offered variety of choices such as chole bhature, nan/tandoori roti, butter chicken and chicken biryani. Beer Lao to accompany the food was simply great! Staff are friendly and helpful. You could even pay in USD instead of Kips, and you could rest assured of a reasonable exchange rate.

Disliked: Cleanliness and ambiance was average, service was a little slow.
