Have your wits on high alert here. The server tried to pursuade us to purchase a $49 dinner special for 2. We made diligent inquiry if the Entertainment coupon (up to $20 value) would be applicable. As a new server she did not know and called her boss. She returned and said her boss said to accept it, so we ordered the dinner special. When she presented the bill, the bill was itemized with the lowest priced item discounted at $12.00 a difference of $8.00. After some discussion with the server, she left and came back with a male (suspect the owner). After more discussion we left $35 cash offered our name and address if they wished to pursue this further. He accepted the cash and told us never to come back! Sounds like he doesn't need our business.

Food was great, service was strong. Typical casual setting, but the food is worth the journey. The restaurant is off a fairly busy road, but parking is available on the side streets.

Last night four of us shared four mains with rice and naan - everything was done really well. Lamb Korma, Prawns with Spinach, Alu Gobi - all excellent. We also had Butter Chicken which everyone liked very much but I found a bit too tomatoey. For the quality of food the prices are reasonable. The restaurant has a nice cozy atmosphere, unusual but welcome, for an Indian restaurant; and the tables are not too close together which is nice these days. While the service was very friendly and attentive at times, I found it a bit slow and noticed other tables were also left on there own for long periods of time; they could benefit from an additional wait staff. However, a very enjoyable evening with excellent, sophisticated Indian Food - I would certainly recommend.

1905 West Broadway, 5 minutes from downtown . If you like Indian food you must dine here. The appetizers are a great start,eg. Mixed platter, Tandoori breads ( Naan ) with a side of chutney trio . The Butter chicken and chicken coconut are very good . Inexpensive for the great food

In terms of flavour and price, it's one of Vancouver's best kept secrets. Service is generally good, although they've had "off" nights. Food is flavourfood and if you ask for spicy, tastes quite authentic. My only complaint is that they bring out the papadams unless you specifically order them.
