“GEM OF A RESTAURANT! AWESOME FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Came across this in the usual way...walking along the sidewalk.... a very unassuming entrance and signage. We were however stopped, by a delightful lady, who coaxed us in to dine.... have to say best decision we made in the two weeks we were on the island!
The food is absolutely awesome. Tasty, plentiful portion size, and served very pleasantly.
As a 'Senior' manager involved in the hospitality industry in the UK, for a leading National restaurant group...then I do NOT give out compliments lightly!!!
Also as a fairly world wide traveller - as well as to India, Sir Lanca, Maldives- then I know a thing or two about Indian Curries...which Is our all time favourite food!!
Suffice to say we dined here on a further 4 occasions!
what ever you do when you are here you really DO need to visit and dine here!!!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We visited this restaurant after reading tripadvisor comments as we love Indian food.It was ok veg in veg curry was packet and you couldnt taste the spices just the heat,food ok but not spectacular,service very good,staff very good.reasonable price .Dont get me wrong it was edible but I would prefer the sister restaurant Zaffran beside the Biosphere for flavour and taste.

“Would return in the evening but not go back at lunch time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Visited here for lunch for the first time recently and there is no question that the food is excellent.
What I didn't realise was that the portion of curry you got (along with 2 ;large pieces of nan, some rice and salad) was Tapas size.
It would be ok for a very light lunch, or someone just wanting to try it out.
I would not return at lunch time as I feel it does not represent value for money, but would certainly go for the larger portion sizes in the evening.

“Great food freshly prepared to your liking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

I am now a regular visitor to this restaurant where Johnny & his staff are very attentive. Food is freshly prepared with authentic flavours. Never had a bad meal. Can confidently recommend this to others as they will not be disappointed. It s also useful to obtain a copy of the free Lanzarote Gazette as 20% discount vouchers are usually found inside.

Have been using this restaurant since it first opened. Always excellent food and service, well worth a visit. If you like indian food, you won't be dissappointed. The Bollywood sizzler is fantastic!
