“Closest authentic Indian Fast Food outside India”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

Restaurant has 3 branches in Singapore. It has extensive 'Chaat' menu. Thought not the best taste and preparation but very close. We went couple of days after Diwali and were told that some of the more popular items were not available. That was utterly disappointing. 'Dahi wada' and 'Alu tikki' were good though same cannot be said of Ragda patties. Avoid Chinese.

Overall good and value for money.

Tip: Go for 'Tasting' Menu which gives small portion at half the price...in case you want to try any new dish.

“nah, not a good option for dining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2011

We visited their Syed Alwi Road hotel. The food quality & taste are not maintained. Less cleanly, sometimes the cutlery are not properly washed. also, jain menu not available. Even when they offered Jain menu, most of the food items were not available upon order. I guess their management has changed. Not worth, overall a repeated bad experience.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2011

By far the best vegetarian restaurant in Singapore. Great food and ambience. Loved the fausia pink decor and the bollywood theme. Mushroom Kurkure was awesome.
