“One of the best Indian foods ever!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

I went there on an impulse, having been recommended to go there for the biryani once. We got there at almost 5 on a Sunday, and we were told they were about to close, but still welcomed us in. There was only one family seated and they had almost finished. When provided with the menu,we were shocked to find over probably 200 options to choose from. It was too much to look through so I asked for a recommendation, and the friendly waitress offered us chicken samosas as a starter - there were 2 and they were massive! Then we got a chicken biryani dish which came in a massive pot and could have fed 4 or 5! We also got a shrimp dish which also was a super size portion, with 8 really big shrimp pieces, in an amazing creamy sauce, that would serve more than 1. Food was served hot and fairly quick, probably because they were closing down soon for the day. The bill was not exorbitant, around 200TT for what could have served at least 4 people. Definitely recommend this!

“Great Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Truly Indian food, large varierty of veg and non veg, from every region, every possible masala, and with ingredients brought from India by her owner. Everything is well spiced, tasteful, all tastes great.

A cannot go wrong restaurant for family and business, not fancy decoration, but actually a reminder of a typical not upscale Indian restaurant at India.

A must go in an area where there is not much around to eat.

Plates are also rather abundant, you may ask for rice as a side, but is likely that you'll eat very little from it, so big are the plates.

“Come again”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

Everything about this establishment is great. I have been there a few times and I just can't have enough. Wonderful staff and excellent food. They also have great take away and a very sweet 'sweet shop'.
