The Best Kebabs I ever had. The garlic Naan was also well prepared and so was mutton curry. Abundant quantity of tea is available.

This place has remained consistently top-notch. They use a real tandoor for their bread (naan) and meat, like chicken. Not a lot of places do this anymore, which is unfortunate, because a tandoor makes everything taste delicious. You can't go wrong with ordering -- from...More

It was a bit like being in India where I travelled two years ago.. Very authentic and busy atmosphere with guests and staff in constant conversation, always finding solutions.. Very tasty and typical Indian/Pakistan food to prices you almost won't believe..

I have lived in Kenya and visited India several times and I can say this is excellent, "authentic" cuisine. No, no frills, but the taste was exquisite. Not a tourist restaurant for sure and I'm pretty sure nobody eating there was consulting trip advisor, but...More
