We had a beautiful meal here during the week and excellent service. We had mixed meat platter for starter which was so much for 3 and so tasty. We had prawn, lamb and chicken mains and all were beautiful

Lovely food as always. Couldn't fault a thing. Checkerboard shashlick tender most and tasty as always, lamb roman josh tasty with tender meat falling apart as it should be, not oily as some restaurants. It's pricey now days so we just have 1 less side...dish to make up the difference but usually love the saag paneer or bindhi. Staff so welcoming and do well serving such a huge space. See you soon!More

Great food. Value for money. Good spicing. Nothing bland here. The staff are very attentive but not overly so and were just there enough. The wine was lovely. ( Izadi) the kulfi was really great. There is a separate veggie section if you need that....Lots of choice but not so much that you're worried about quality. Great prices. We would definitely recommendMore

Restaurant situated just off the coastal expressway with wonderful views on the sea. We had lunch on a sunny December day and elected to eat on the patio - a little noisy owing to the expressway being only a few yards away. The glas screen...helps to reduce the traffic noise and at the same time gives shelter from the breeze. We both ordered the non-veg thali, which comes with 2 veg and one non-veg dish, as well as a naan, rice, raita and a gulab jamun. As always with this dish, you tend to think that the portions should be more generous, but they are, in fact, more than sufficient. The smell drifting from the kitchen had promised tasty food, but OMG the taste was fabulous. We have both travelled the length and breadth of India and, this was one of the best Indian meals we have eaten. Spice levels OK for us. Service was friendly and efficient. Fully recommend you try them. PetePlumMore

First visit here after passing it many times in the last couple of years. First class food and service, great menu, great choice, good wines all reasonably priced. Munch who looked after us made us feel like we had been there 1000 times before. You...must make the journey here even though coming out of La Cala it’s on the other side of the main road! We will certainly return with our friends next time.More

The staff was very friendly. The restaurant had nice outdoor seating...and eating indoors was quite nice. It was spacious and very nice atmosphere. Overall highly recommend this location.More

The staff was very friendly and service minded. The food was amazing and plenty of it. The chefs specialist dishes are good. And the Biryani dish is the best Indian dishes we have tried. Definitely worth a try!

Visit this restaurant every time we are over in the region and missed it for the past 2 years. The food remains excellent and service is spot on. Our party was six in total and all guests were marvelling over the quality and taste. Can’t...wait for our next visit!More

This Indian restaurant is exceptional. The food and service you can't fault it. The place is nicely decorated and has a lovely ambiance for outside dining. I love a good Chichen Madras , this was one of the best I have had ever! My Husband...loves grills, the tandoori was equally good. Its just outside of La Cala just a few minutes from the centre. Well worth a visit !!More
