Bhindi masala is a winner, fresh chipatas in the afternoon between 5-6pm.Everything else we tasted was a bit bland, esp the tadka dal, which was suprising given the restaurants name. Not many people in the restaurant the two times we went and felt a little dark. Staff were attentive.

Great Indian food for the right price (~250 rupee per person). After 4 months of traveling and trying everything, this is one of the top. Just ordinary but very well prepared dishes. Be sure to take indian food, tried chowmain once and wasn't great. My recommendation is the paneer butter masala (it's not spicy although it says it is)

Nice clean restaurant with tasty food and big portions! The best curry I've had in India so far.. (3 weeks!) we had the Aloo Ghobi and Channa Masala, both of which were really good! Quick service and reasonable prices and... you can pay by card!! :) also really good coffee!

Our hostel recommended this place to us, and it didn't disappoint. Great, flavourful vegetarian food. Do try the Tandoori Cauliflower - really special! All the flavour of tandoori meat with a fresh twist. The Paneer in cashew gravy (sauce) was fabulous too - like a mild but very tasty tikka masala back home. All in all, a step above your... More

Possibly the best restaurant in the Main Bazzar area. Ate there twice, and we both licked our plates clean.

Attentive to ones needs. I personally had a lot of requests from the waiter - all fulfilled. Great food. Toilets a bit harsh, but that is what India is like. Not expensive at all.
