“Like in India”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

I was here with friends on Friday, every Friday night there is a party with Indian music and dances.
First everybody ate the delishios food (hot or not - that is by choice) - Mr. Kumar prepared (he is a cook with international diplom), everything was exactly like in India, and he come to meet his guests and ask is everything OK. We'w got Rogan Josh, Kashmiri Rice (with badems and raisin), chapati, and a special kind of Indian ice-cream - it was like nuga.
After that we'we got participation in the Show, because when Kapka and her daughters are dancing, nobody can seat and watch, everybody want to dance.

The garden is beautiful, in - there is not enough place. Hospitality and good food is, that make that place to come again.

“Real Indian food you can get enough for two person minimum”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Nice couple running the place. Mr.Raj cooks and he has that Indian hand while cooking a tadka and samosa's are very delicious. He will cook fresh for so worth the wait. You specify and he cooks exactly.
Over very filling and authentic with good service.

“Fantastic food, average interior”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Fantasitic food for a very reasonable price. We had mango lassi, samosa and Chiken Korma. Ate everything before we realised we should have taken pictures.
One can find the menu online.
The restaurant itself seemed to be small. Apparently for summer season they put tables outside. The interior is rather average but the hospitality in this place totally makes up for it.

Keep up the good work, Mrs Kumar!

“Great family restaurant...”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

When the owner Kapka greeted me in Hindi as I walked in, I thought she was Indian. Her Hindi is flawless.I was going to "enlighten" her on the meaning of her name in Bulgarian when I discovered that she is actually a Bulgarka. She has a passion for dance and runs a Bollywood dance school for the Indian (and other interested) kids in the community. I met her daughters, the eldest of whom also speaks Hindi! I felt like I was dreaming all this.
Kapka and the family make guests feel welcomed as they actually sit down and talk with them.
Her husband who is an Indian (Kumar) is the chef and the food was quite authentic in the Punjabi style. The prices are very very reasonable (compared to the over-priced Taj Mahal and Kohinoor). If going for dinner, skip lunch so that you can do justice to the portions that are quite adequate.
