We ate dinner there while being in Stonetown. The place looks really neat, the food is tasty and prices are reasonable. The waiters are friendly, quick and actually pay attention. We dropped a fork by accident and had a new one before we could pick it up. Jasmin, the friendly owner even comes by at every table and asks if everything is alright. Worth a visit!

We had dinner at this northern indian restaurant during our stone town visit. Ample seating and reasonable atmosphere. Dishes were modest in proportion, well prepared and really good. We enjoyed the veggie samosas, spinach paneer, chicken vindaloo.

A bit pricer than other options (about $12,000 - $15,000 TSH/dish) but worth it.

We were recommended this restaurant by an Indian English chap visiting Stone Town and were not dissapointed. Inside it is nicely decorated, with sumptuous fabrics and all the staff are outfitted in colourful Indian salwar kameez style clothing.

The cocktails were good (and reasonably priced) and the food hot and tasty. Maybe not the best value around, but all pretty good. We had a chat with the owner on the way out, a lovely guy who has started the restaurant as he does not want to retire!

I love Indian food. This is a great place. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. There are a variety of options on the menu. The portions are huge and you can share. I suggest starting with the sampler. It was enough for 3 or 4 people. The medium spiceness had a great kick to it.
