Hubs and I had a craving for Indian food and were told this place was a good choice, walking distance from our B&B. The woman who served us was extremely warm. We tried to order some wine with our food and this lovely lady had no idea about wine whatsoever. We finally chose a wine after I went over and pointed out the one I wanted to her, and she brought the carafe over with a couple of water glasses in which to serve it. We did not care and found this to be part of the charm of this family run establishment, but could easily see wine snobs being very put off by this. Given that vino is a burgeoning industry in the Okanagan, it would make sense for this restaurant to put a bit more thought into their wines and the service of the wines they offer to accompany their excellent Indian food. And the food is where this place shines...it is outstanding. Everything is fresh, perfectly spiced and really, really good. Go for the food, be specific about the wine you want with it and it will be fine. The staff are not polished but they are warm and it makes them happy to feed their customers delicious food. Just surrender to it and enjoy. If you can do that, you will love it. If you're going to get all fussy, go elsewhere.

First time visit was to check it out. Now, it's a staple visit when in Penticton. It's downtown, they don't have a lot of tables, but the food is wonderful, and the service too. It comes across very much as a Family Business, and it adds to it's charm. The food there, though, is superb! If you like east Indian cuisine, this is the best in town!

i drove to penticton all the way from kelowna just to have a dinner at lachi with friends. as we stepped in there was no welcome from the staff, the guy behind the counter gave weired expressions, we got so pissed off as no one even offered us a table. anyhow we ourselves occupied a table then no water was served untill we asked. level of frustration was so high at that time but somehow we ordered food which was so delicious as always. no one came to ask us if we need something or no. when we were done with the dinner i asked for check but i got no response from the server. we literally had to wait for like another 15 minutes just to get the bill. the guy was showing that he is too busy but actually was doing nothing. we all were so annoyed by the kind of service we had. i ve been to a lot of restaurants in lower mainland and okangan valley but the kind of service we had here was worst out of all.

Lachi is NOT to be missed! This is real Indian cooking at it's very best. The chefs are fabulous!

The chicken byrani is to DIE for as is the chicken vindaloo and butter chicken. There is also a mango chicken that should not be overlooked for it is also divine.

This is the best Indian food I have ever had, and I've had it in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto. We eat here one to three times per week.

I dare say...it may be the best food in all of Penticton!
