Restaurant was warm and cozy on a cold winter's night. Even though it was a Friday evening and the restaurant was quite full already and we didn't have a reservation, we were seated promptly. The service was also prompt, helpful and courteous, despite the fact the servers were busy. The restaurant has been around for a long time in the... More

Definitely loved the ambience. It's like stepping in Taj Mahal, India. Papadum starter was a surprise. Each dish comes in a small metal bowl with naan at an extra cost. Rice is not listed on the menu but you can still order it. Portions of the rice is huge. Two orders of rice fed three of us and still have... More

My mom was in a nearby care facility and decided that she wanted butter chicken for lunch so off I went in search of an Indian restaurant take out. Service was prompt and the food was good. Mom was kind enough to share some with me :)

After reading some negative reviews I got quite worried that this elegant little Indian restaurant might have fallen off it's game. There are other Indian Restaurants in the Glebe, but, I like this one for the décor. But, I had friends in town and they wanted Indian food, so I gave our local favourite a try. We had a good...

Ugh!!! What a horrible restaurant. Nothing India about it. We visited Ottawa/Montreal/Quebec city and tried several restaurants including Indian food. But this place? I feel nauseating even thinking about it. Ordered chicken biryani and what we got was rice and chicken sautéed on lots of ghee topped with some raisins.we were furious and walked out of the restaurant just paying... More

Went in on a quiet week night looking to have a bowel of soul and salads. We were told we couldn't just order this. We got up and left. They were rude in their approach and offered no discussion. Needless to say we won't go back. Went next door to the The Rowan and they were extremely happy to see... More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in Ottawa. Good meats and you can choose how spicy food you want. The only drawback is the shortage of parking space.

The service was ok but a bit slow (we had to get our water ourselves), most buffet dishes were already almost empty at 12:45 and were not replenished although the restaurant only clses at 14:00; fortunately the server brought us 3 dishes at the table to compensate for the lack of food in the buffet. The nan was fresh and... More

We stumbled across this Indian restaurant by accident whilst looking for another restaurant on trip advisor. We decided to give it ago despite it being a taxi ride away. We weren't disappointed. The food was just excellent, as was the service. We arrived and were given a few minutes to settle in before being approached for our drinks order and... More

We took my daughter on a Sunday night in chilly February. Received a warm welcome. The food was delicious, the menu varied and extensive. The price was a little higher than we are used to for Indian food, but we are spoiled as we live near Brampton, Ontario :-). The waiters were super friendly and we had a fabulous time.... More
