Nelson has plenty of restaurants to chose from, but if you are craving Indian cuisine - go here! The restaurant itself is cute but quite plain. The lady of the house has suggestions, and questions for you as well, as to what degree of hotness you like, etc. At first, we thought the portions small for the $$$, but the... More

Had a delicious meal here. The decor is casual and more of a cafe setting. Service was very good. All homemade Indian cuisine.

I have eaten hear many times. The lunch special is predictably good. The portions are generous and the wait staff friendly. Don't be afraid to ask about the various dishes, they are always glad to tell you what is in the recipes and how they are prepared.

Great lunch on the patio. We had one of their combos. Lots of food and the flavours were great. My husband had the butter chicken and loved it, I had the special that day and it was awesome.

Smaller restaurant right on the Nelson strip, delicious authentic Indian food. Ate there in June 2016 and would go back again the next time we're in town. Staff was also very friendly and the prices are good. Definitely recommend. The bathroom needs to be called out, its clean but hilariously small. Like bang your knees on the door when sitting...

No bad surprise here. In my party, we all had great food. The ambiance of the restaurant felt like it could be updated, but the food was good. They tend to serve the food quite spicy though. I asked for something sweet and found that my food was quite spicy despite asking for something that wouldn't be. I asked for... More

So we live in Vancouver where good, cheap Indian food is readily available. Have to say that this is superlative and really authentic food. The Chicken Tikka Mekhani is their version of butter chicken only the best butter chicken you've ever had, so sweet and fragrant. The Lamb Rogan Josh was tender and flavourful. Garlic naan OMG yum. We had... More

We have now been here a number of times and have never been disappointed with quality or taste of the food. There is a good cross section of food. In the summer months, we find that air conditioning would certainly help, especially when you sit near the back of the restaurant. Service was prompt. The restaurant tends to fill up... More
