The food served is not an authentic Indian. The taste of the dishes were not really good, However the service and location of the restaurant was up to mark

My family and I went here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. It was delicious and the service was great. The restaurant was jam-packed but they fit us in. Make a reservation if you can. Best meal in Kilkenny.

The most delicious Indian food to be found in Kilkenny. Our first visit, but most definitely not our last. And best of all, our two children aged 4 and 2 devoured their meals which means it can now become a family favorite. I had lamb...More
