We love Thai food but sometimes Thai food in Phuket is altered to suit the tourists. Sometimes you feel like something else than Thai food. Get yourself here then because this is undoubtably the best Indian food we have had for some time - including travelling through India recently. Absolutely awesome. And a lovely, enthusiastic, passionate host in Mr. Shah... More

Good option if you want a change from Thai food. Having read the number of excellent reviews, we were hoping for something a bit better. Popadums were a little burned, curries were good but more spicy than we expected (not a complaint) and the rice was clumped together rather than fluffy. We also had a nan which wasn't as good...

If you are craving something different from the Asian or local food, you can head here for an indian meal. The food quality was pretty decent.

The food was very good, however very less vegetarian options. The owner has honey on his tongue and welcomes/engages everyone in his restaurant. We stayed in Nai Yang so been to this place many times as the food was tasty and hygienic. Just one thing we didnt like - owner used to insult/should on his staff a lot. I agree... More

We found this place by accident and were very happy with the quality of the food. We had a whole schnapper cooked in the tandoor which was very nice, a couple of curries (the vindaloo wasn't...

After looking at trip advisor, we decided to come here after reading the reviews. We where warmly greeted by the owner who has wonderful customer relations, and very attentive.
