“Indian food better than it is in India.”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

For those of you that are familiar with the providers of Indian food,it is suffient to say that the owner of the restaurant is Mr. Oberoi. For those of you not familiar, check out the name Oberoi (re. Indian food).

“Tasty authentic indian”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Authentic indian food, served in nice portions. Restaurant is inside Carven hotel. The restaurant itself is nothing fancy, but the food is authentically prepared (hotel owners are from India)

The food can be served on the roof top which is open air, a much nicer option for casual dining.

“Delicious comfort Indian Food!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

A group of friends and I checked out this Restaurant after reading the amazing reviews about it. All of us decided to check it out because Indian food would be our comfort food before our began our 2 weeks trip of Egypt. And it was well worth it!!!

The owner himself Mr. Oberoi attended to us and recommended the briyani. We tried the shrimp briyani, cheese naan, palak paneer, mushroom rogan ghosh and raita. The portions were good for sharing. The food was delicious to say the least. It was really the comfort food all of us needed, it did remind me of home a little. The decor and ambiance was rustic.

The restaurant is part of The Karvin Hotel. The hospitality was great. The hotel staff actually got us a taxi & negotiated for us after we were done with our meal.

The only complaint I had was that there was no separate section for smoking and that towards the end of our meal we had to leave because another customer was smoking and it was disturbing us.

“Excellent Indian, if you can get over the setting”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Several of my friends have raved about this place so I decided to take my mom for lunch there. the location is not easy to find since it's in a small side street in Heliopolis...and the hotel that it's in is quite poor. As soon as we walked in, the bright pink walls and the overpowering smell quite turned me off. The food however is a different story...excellent and authentic! the staff are extremely helpful and the owner came to see if everything's ok, thanking us for visiting them; a nice personal touch.

“good indian fare in Cairo”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We've been here a few times and have always loved the service and the food. Wide range of choices, and the beer is ice cold. Couldn't ask for more in an Indian restaurant!
