“excellent Indian food in a very central location”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

3 of us visited the restaurant recently; its located just off Marienplatz and is easy to find.

Ambience is fairly good and seating is spacious.

There were two waiters managing the entire show, so there were certain delays in getting to place orders.

The jeera/salt lassi was fabulous.
The starters (pakoras) were excellent.

Main courses were sumptuous and had rich aroma and very authentic taste.
We ordered three main courses and each one turned out to be distinct and delectable.

Pricing is moderate and would certainly recommend the place for an authentic Indian curry experience.

“Excellent genuine Indian food”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Excellent food! Service could have been better and more friendly and flexible. Price was ok for Munich but overall expensive.

“Worst Indian food in Munich”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Went to this place on a friends birthday and had the worst dinner possible. None of the dishes were cooked well and everything tasted bland. Lamb masala was like hard pieces of lamb in sour tomato soup. The jalfrezi was so terrible we had to order some other dish to finish our meal which was also not good. There was no hint of spice nor originality in the cooking.

“The blandest Indian food I've ever eaten; Slow service”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

I never thought I'd equate "bland" with Indian food, but there's a first time for everything. Perhaps they cater to local tastes? (German food isn't exactly spicy, after all). The staff was alright; just not at all attentive. My dish was surprisingly bland, so I wanted to order something else and ask for more spice, but the waiter never came around after dropping off our food. We had to flag him down for the check when we were done. We waited about 20 minutes after we were done eating to get a chance to even ask for the check, and the place was practically empty, so go figure. My husband's entree was a little more flavorful, but still much more bland than we've had at the many Indian places we've eaten at around the world.

The bathrooms were OK as far as cleanliness, but there were no paper towels to dry my hands.
