“Top 3 in Salmon Arm, best indian I've tried in the Shuswap/Okanagen”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

I don't understand why this place isn't busier! When you go in, its clear that every one of the patrons is a regular. I am glad I am.

Everybody goes out of their way to make you feel not just welcome, but special. As the food can be customized to your taste, there is no excuse for having a bad meal! Unless you don't know what you like I suppose.

Some of the dishes are different from what I was used to living in a community comprised primarily of south asians. The reason for this is that the family is Fijian indian, so there is a slight change in preparation. Don't let that statement discourage you. The change is for the better. Ultimately the food is made with care and love, and the message is delivered loud and clear. '

The buffet is one of the best values in town, and the selection changes regularly. Ordering off the menu is made easy from the staff. They will take the time to help you work through any unfamiliarity and create an excellent meal.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Great food, great service. The Butter Chicken was outstanding. The decor is tired, but don't judge a book by its cover.

“Great food and great service”
Reviewed 15 June 2011

This is an East Indian restaurant which has an excellent variety of food. There is a buffet twice a week and both a lunch and dinner menu. The food tastes like home cooked food. The owner is the cook and the son is the main waiter. The food is made spicy to one's taste. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Invariably the service is friendly and quick. We recommend this restaurant if you like Indian flavours. The price is right, the samosa tasty and hot and the meals are great.
