Incredible tasty food, authentic place with all that chic you expect in an indian restaurant. Colorful decorations and the most hospitable owner ever. Try the Pakora Stuff which is the best I had so far. Really good and prices are very berlin-like, cheap cheap.

Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,

Undoubtedly the city’s most sophisticated Indian restaurant, Meena Kumari is nestled beneath the colourful towering buildings of the imposing Lychener Strasse. A glass frontage gives way to fresh, white walls, comfortable cream banquettes and colourful artworks – a great talking point whether you pop in for after work drinks or a lingering romantic meal. Towards the back of the restaurant a deep red enclave, almost hidden behind a huge image of the beautiful Indian actress after which the restaurant is named, provides a more intimate, dimly lit setting where couples enjoy each others company and small groups of friends gossip over wine. The unusual, Indian style dishes which populate a short and sweet menu upon which the large platters of appetisers are particularly popular for sharing.
