“Good food, good service -authentic Indian”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Good restaurant and authentic food served by Indian staff. Good atmosphere and ideal for entertaining business clients as it is quiet and you get a somewhat personalised service. In our experience was relatively expensive compared to sImilar Chinese restaurants, but you get the real Indian food and beer ( kingfisher ).

My client was vegetarian and as such this was a great find in Shanghai.

One thing to be aware, we found it very difficult to get a taxi back on a Friday night from there . At the end we had to catch subway ( and it shuts around 11pm)

“Delicious indian food !!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Hi I vistied this Indian Restaurants with couple of my friends, the food is great and very well presented. The decor and ambiance is also excelling for dinning and the only draw back is the pricing of the menu.

The price is quite expensive for the food you get, perhaps a meal for 2 would cost you at-least 1500-1800 RMB. Also the hospitality is pretty good, most of the waiters and staff is Indian, so definitely a you wont miss india that much when you visit this place

“Encore”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

My previous three trips to this restaurant having been satisfying I was dismayed to see the mediocre reviews on this restaurant. Particularly since I had scheduled a client meeting there for lunch I was a little anxious about the service about which the other reviews do not rave.
Personally I have always received good service here even during peak hours though sometimes the service times can be long. The lunch went off very well, no complaints about the service ( we were about the only guests around) and the food if not outstanding was excellent. The prices are a little on the higher side but then this is speciality food in Shanghai. The Kingfisher beer was great too. This is a long way from the lousy Indian food available in Shanghai in 2000 when there were only two Indian restaurants and the quality was abysmal.

“A restaurant with a good decor and decent food”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The restaurant is spacious. Located on the 1st floor.
The waiter was very friendly and was eager to take the order of food and prepare Jain dishes which is my special requirement.
