“Dont miss out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

After 4 days in Ravello near Amalfi eating average food at expensive prices we landed in Rome. We went to Krishna for a change from Italian food and it turned out to be the best meal we had, and for just over 50 euro. well worth a visit.

“Good Indian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

We were in Rome for 4 days and every Italian restaurants we wanted to try were closed. Based on the reviews, and since we are fans of Indian food, we decided to try Krishna 13 and were not disappointed! The food was very tasty and prices were reasonable. We enjoyed our evening very much!!

“Nice Ambiance. Good Food. But All These 5 Stars??”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Krishna 13 is a lovely setting for good, solid Indian food, but it's not a 5-star Indian restaurant as most reviews would have you believe. I think lots of reviewers were maxed out on pasta and pizza and the dearth of restaurant-quality ethnic food in Rome. Krishna 13's food is good, sometimes very good. The baingan bharta was great and the the yellow dahl, outstanding. The chicken tikka masala was almost 100% sauce -- a couple of shreds of chicken in the sauce made for a dish that disappointed us. The palak paneer, while pleasing to the eye, was flavourless. While I dislike burning hot Indian food, good Indian food is flavourful, complex and spicy. I'm convinced they tone it down a lot here given that Italians are not really into spicy food as a rule. The portion sizes were also disappointing. They're more like Indian "tapas" than entree sized portions. The wait staff was competent and pleasant. The atmosphere is great and makes for a lovely setting. All-in-all, Krishna 13 serves mostly good Indian food in a nice ambiance…it's worth a visit but don't expect a 5-star experience.
