What a nice surprise. Centrally located, easy access by metro, but a nightmare when arriving by car. No parking unfortunately. The food is a very well cooked version of Indian that wants to appeal to Greeks. I had a marvellous Spinach Saag Panee with a Manouri-like cheese. Lentils, lamb and rice were nice. The 2 Samosas per serving were huge and quite good. Overall a nice place to eat decent Indian that won't upset your stomach. The place is tiny - around 10 tables and very crowded. Be sure to book before you visit. I went on a Wednesday and barely got a table for two, in a very crowded and busy atmosphere.

Small place, no parking facilities; food just try to imitate Indian cuisine but very far from it.
No spices no proper tandoori oven to prepare bread and others dishes.. Nans so thick like focaccias.. Low price, huge portions but not any special...

Nice and polite service. They know what dish to propose depending on your preferences. Beautiful enamelware to serve the main courses. Large portions of food. Reasonable prices (for a company of three we paid 49€ and got 2 apetizers, 2 rice dishes, 3 main courses and beverages). I would eat there again for sure with pleasure!

A small indian restaurant a few metres from Panormou metro station. The place isn't something special but the food worth 100%. Very helpful service and frendly owner. Absolutely clean with logical prices. Highly recommend it. Make reservation otherwise you will not find free table especially in weekends.

In theory this place looks good... We were super excited when we saw the menu and booked early on in the day anticipating a yummy, tasty and SPICY curry.
Service was a shambles.... I am not sure if its sheer laziness or just non-interest if they don't know you ie a walk in. To be fair when we walked in we saw a few Indian couples so we thought to ourselves who cares about the service lets just enjoy the food.
Alas it was just tasteless. There is not much more to say but that it's tasteless. Don't, however, whatever you do order the prawns you get those crappy minute ones that u kinda swallow as their so teeny tiny. Seriously we are in Greece - surely Red indian could step it up to provide real Shrimp
Oh and make sure to take cash otherwise you walk down a hill to get to a cash point.
Also if looking for Indian beer you will also be sorely disappointed.
If you have NEVER had curry and or don't like spice this place is great... And a little exotic.
