“Indianfood in the Shuswap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Service was great. I really enjoyed the food as I am not that familiar with indian food and often find it too spicy. The server asked the right questions and brought us food that suited our palate. I will be back.

“Great food, mediocre staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Every time I have ordered here, the food has been great. I've loved it, every bite of it. However, the staff do their job, and they do it well but they don't seem to strive that extra mile that other places in town do.

“Best Indian food in the BC interior”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Loved the food here. Unexpectedly excellent Indian food. Couldn't believe Salmon Arm has this gem of a restaurant. The portions are generous and food so authentic tasting (we have been to India).

Highly recommend it.

“Barely passable Indian food but ok for a small town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Everything is relative especially when it comes to the size of the town vs. the quality of the restaurant. Just like you can't expect the world class Chinese dining of Richmond in Williams Lake, you also can't expect to find the type of Surrey/Langley restaurant which literally whisks you to Goa or the Punjab in Salmon Arm. If this place was in the Lower Mainland it would be abysmal. Here on the shores of the Shuswap it's borderline (at best). The lunch plates are undersized, the quality of food and preparation scrimped upon, and by far the worst trait is that the food is completely bland. This is Indian food that has all the spice of your average Pablum. Now I know that Salmon Arm isn't exactly foodie heaven and that there are probably all of a dozen families from the subcontinent who live there but for the sake of (insert Hindu deity here) give me SOMETHING that wakes up my taste buds. That part of the meal is completely unforgivable! How can you call it Indian food if it tastes like NOTHING?

“Excellent food - great atmosphere, and lots of choices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

We took a chance and decided to try this place while in the area on business. So glad we did!! The food was delicious, the atmosphere is great, and the service excellent. We both had the lunch special - which was chicken curry, chickpeas, salad, rice, and naan. It was delicious, and very filling. Can't wait to go back the next time I am in the area!
