We went there for a late lunch when there were not many guests. We ordered a chicken masala curry and a cashew nuts chicken curry. It was served with rice and chapatis. The chicken masala curry was delicious, spicy and verrry tasty. The cashew nuts chicken curry was instead not that exciting, but still freshly prepared and good, if you like mild currys. We also had a ginger tea that was very interesting in a positive way. We spent our usual +/- 13.000 ryats for two mains and drinks, and the portions were really big.

Overrated because it really is sub-average Indian food. Sure it's rural Myanmar, but with all the hype about the place you'd expect much better. For example, the lamb was mostly nerve or fat, and the rice was just plain steamed. The dips/sauces were OK, however. Overpriced because the typical dish here costs 5000 Kyat, whereas in other restaurants it would be about 3000. As for the service, we waited 40 minutes just to get our drinks, and one hour 10 minutes for our food. When the main dishes eventually did arrive, we had to wait another 5 minutes for them to bring out the rice, and 5 minutes more for a chapati we ordered. The staff weren't exactly very friendly or unapologetic either. Overall an extremely disappointing place.

Don´t expect traditional indian food, this is myanmar and european influenced cousine but we enjoy a lot. Everything was tasty and the local vine from Red Mountin was excelent. The best was the stuff speaking really perfect english with no accent.

A very expensive restaurant with a very lousy and rude service

The owner's daughter is trying to do everything, taking order, collecting the bills and reprimanding the staff all together at the same time.

Oh by the way, if you look like ordinary Myanmar, dont bother going there because they think you can't afford the bill's will be ignore most of the time.

I know, is a topic going to one of the most recomended restaurants in Bagan by Lonely Planet, but is a place not to be missed if you want to indulgence yourself with reasonable and not cheap indian food. Chicken tikka, lassi, and beer: 9.000 ryats.
