Honestly, I'm used to curries in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. We selected this restaurant due to the 8 reviews on file. It's a mega pain to find down, though you do walk through nice old side streets, the "real"Beijing. Use the GPS on your phone if you can.

We had :-
Onion Bhaji - mediocre, tasteless
Samosa's - OK, poor pastry
Mint sauce - where's the mint ?
Poppadoms - roasted, horrid, ask for fried
Nan - plain and buttered OK.
Vegetable curry - cheese in it, tastes sweet, super yuk though Chinese friends liked it.
Chicken Tikka Masala - OK, just
Rojan Josh - sorry, but this is supposed to be reddish in color, ours was sick yellow and tasted not that good
Chicken Tandooori - the best dish.

Overall, not worth the hassle of getting there. We noticed another curry house on the way there, can't recall the name, but on the main road away from town.

Sorry to be critical, but not that great. Also freezing cold.

We went here on holiday's based on a localchinese friends recommendation. The indian staff were very friendly on arrival and seeemed genuinely interested in our day and entered into comfortable and natural small talk with us.

We did not book in advance, however were lucky to be seated in their garden on a table overlooking the Beijing courtyard. The staff were attentive and friendly during the experience.Starters and curries were ordered that met the expectations based on the recommendations.
This place is cheap as a "Indian Fast food",but the standard is much higher and it still represents great value for money. Our bill came to approximitely 235 yuan for 3 adults to have a starter, main and drink. It is tasty and represents great value for money.

We visited this last night for the first time. The Indian guy on the phone was very helpful in guiding us to it. When we arrived there was about 15 other Indians in there eating. Impressive for any night, never mind a Wednesday. Decided to get some specials,which I was missing in china trip(like chicken curry with bone) and it was served quickly, on a huge (colourful) plate. It was very fresh taste as home. Service was excellent, with staff managing to check on us regularly and top up our water before it went down. We were using a chinese website discount voucher that my chinese friend booked from and got special 10% discount. Dinner for six, wine for one and a side portion between us cost 310 yuan. Great value!

Came here with colleagues, after a friend's recommendation. The staff are lovely, very attentive and all truly indian. The restaurant courtyard gives it a very personal feel. Atmosphere is relaxed, food is 100% authentic. Their menu is pretty inclusive of everyone's liking, and the staff go out of their way to make sure that there's enough spice for those who like it hot, zero spice for the curry amateurs and no milk products for the lactose intolerant. They also serve an indian beer which is pretty good. I recommend the chicken in mango curry and the lamb in spinach. The side dishes were also finger-licking good.

Restaurant is in a nice location amidst several other tourist and international cuisine places. Food for 2 ad and 2kids cost around 240Yuan. THe local restaurants typically cost 120yuan for the same party size typically.

Food was OK - the kabobs werent as juicy as they should be and were a little dry. Many vegan options available if you are looking for specialty food. Vegetarian dishes were quite tasty and nice
