The food tasted sub par and the service was horrible. I offended them when I asked what was in the lasagna before I ordered it. My friends offended them by asking what the chili consisted of. They said it's chili, what every chili is made of.

I've been going here since 1995 and it used to be much better; at that time you could have as much lassi to drink as you wanted and the staff was more welcoming, but although it lost its 5 star (according to my opinion) about 10 years ago, it is still one of my favorite places in Stockholm and I...

This restaurant serves pure veg food( no onion & garlic ). Run by devotes of Iskcon, pure hygienic veg dishes are available. Their thali ( small or big) are good for a whole sum meal. Priced decently at SEK 79 or 99. Must visit for vegetarians.

Had been there for dinner. The theme was semi-buffet in the sense that you get the main course including the salad served by a person but on the board they say its free refills. The service was inept to say the least. They showed me a board and told me i can take only that was mentioned there before-hand in... More

I have always been wanting to visit one of these ISKON restaurants and I found one in Stockholm and I must say that I was quite disappointed. I was given two veges and a pea soup. The food was simply abysmal. I really wish they'd stop calling it an Indian restaurant. I don't think Lord Krishna would even touch something... More

Lentil soup is good and I would recommend the lasagna as well. This place is simple and doesn't have gaudy furniture which makes it more likeable. Food is available from 11 am onwards and variety of sandwiches are also available. I like the thali..which has rice, bread, soup, vegetables, pappadam and lassi drink. Best suited for pure vegetarian or Jains.

Took the family there for a vegetarian curry meal. We were extremely disappointed in the food. The choice was big or small plate. The main meal was a stew (I wouldn't even call it a curry) of potatoes, carrots, peas, cauliflower and broccoli with rice. Not a specific dish with a proper name, just whatever they threw in the pot... More

I am non-vegetarian and I enjoyed it! Great price, more than enough food and great price if you go during lunch time Mon-Fri.
