A must to try their prawns, fish, corn in coconut, al is delicious. Their passion juice is simply devine. The only negative aspect is hard to find a car par.

Am coming since about 12 years up to 3 times a year to Mombasa .... Lot's of Indian restaurants come and go, but this place I know since a decade I guess, and it is still there, owned and run by the same guy. For me for a quick lunch this is the best place, in the heart of the city, well airconditioned when it is soo hot outside .... Not overeating at lunch, I mostly just limit myself to palak paneer (spinach with cheesecubes) with a garlic naan, and as drink (since they do not serve alcohol) I take a salted Lassi (yoghurt with spices and salt, very refreshing). If you are hungry and/or have more time, all the other food is delicious as well, as I have tried lots of dishes over the years. Do not hesitate to come here when you feel like having Indian food.

Great ambiance, with super food. The real Indian taste however comes at a price.
