I don't live in the are, but I've heard so many good reviews, I had to find an excuse to try it. We weren't disappointed. Started with vegetarian samosas. Small, but less batter and not as long in the fryer. Healthier and very tasty. A bit hot I couldn't wait to let it cool off and burnt the roof of... More

A friend invited me to check out this restaurant which is hidden in the Cetre of Bayers Lake Industrial Park. It took me a while to find it. Parking was a challenge as I got there around lunch time. Not sure what it is like during dinner time. But you know what, I will let you know because I do... More

The food here is consistently wonderful. The lunch specials are great. The Saturday and Sunday buffets vary from week to week and are all the best. There is now a dessert section a few doors down and it's also wonderful.

Have been here several times in last 4 years due to lack of choices for Indian food in Halifax but they are not great. Other places are much better. Probably rated high by Caucasians but not Indians persay.

A great atmosphere in a cosy restaurant. Excellent food and very friendly helpful staff. This was our first visit here although we had had takeaway before and it certainly did not disappoint. The food was top quality and very quick to arrive. I would highly recommend eating here.

This place had become a stop for us when visiting Halifax. Normally, we get takeout but this time we dined in. We were not disappointed. Today they had a buffet and the food was amazing. The staff is extremely nice, friendly and helpful.

This is my third visit to this restaurant and I love it. Best Indian food in Halifax and it's tucked away so it's never packed. Bayers lake really just has big chain restaurants so this is an oasis in the shopping jungle.

Meat Thali was yummy!! Today was bone-in, butter chicken and a ground lamb for the meat selections. Glad we decided to come for lunch...it had been a while.

Our first visit was actually 3 weeks ago, but the notice said Take Out Only, so we left. Short of wait staff, maybe?? Our second visit said Buffet Only, but we stayed this time. Short of kitchen staff, maybe?? All tasted ok. There was a chicken curry and a ground beef curry, plus two vegetable curries, one of which -... More
