they serve northern indian authentic food. since they use imported ingredients the prices are a bit high. but you are paying for quality food. it is a/c and they also sell beers are reasonable prices. staff are friendly and attentive.

This is an air conditioned restaurant with an outstanding menu. Outdoor seating available too, along a pretty street. Serves draft beer (Tiger) and also wine. Naan was a bit dull, but mutton exquisite. Good service with huge menu and custom cooked food. I liked it well enough to return tonite.

After getting a craving for Indian while gallivanting through India street - couldn't find an Indian restaurant there - we came across this place. A bit of an odd smell but the AC cured that. The waiter recommended the chicken something ( I remember it was half chicken cooked in almonds and something else). Great recommendation. The chicken was pretty... More

Dear Jonathan D, Thank you for visiting our restaurant with your girlfriend. I am astonished to see your comment about our restaurant's 'odd smell'. We maintain one of the best clean restaurants in Kuching where everyone only expressed their praise for the past 23 years. Perhaps, your own shabby attire might have given you a reactionary odour when you entered... More

The food is okay, but there are much better Indian restaurants in Kuching. The food is slightly overpriced for what you get and we ordered a side dish which cost a ridiculous amount on our final bill. Also, when we went, the card machine wouldn't work and this caused an issue. We had the amount in cash (minus 1 Ringitt)... More

Food is good and is authentic, thanks to a chef from India. The service is very friendly, though sometimes short-handed.

We have been in the Kuching area for a couple of weeks and visiting various areas and sampling different cuisines. Decided to experience Indian at the restaurant level... We sat outside for lunch. We have traveled in India and Sri Lanka and essentially eat solely subcontinental food at home. This place boasted an impressive and authentic vegetarian selection on the... More

Good points: fast service, relatively friendly. Bad points: very small portions, not very tasty ( I guess this is subjective), watered down chutneys,odd smell in restaurant. Very expensive for what you get. Just feels they try and cut corners to maximize profits. Go to King Curry instead.

I went on a quiet night and it was a bit awkward sitting in the restaurant alone. The AC wasn't doing much, so I was sweating profusely, and the owners (I think) were sitting behind a desk chatting and watching things on their phones. The wait staff though were delightful - smiley and helpful. The food was ok. Tasty enough,... More
