I'd been here once, and I decided to come again with my friend. The food was good, but the service was awful! The waitress left the bottle of prosecco on our table, without any opening, so I guess we should open it by ourselves. All...staff was on the phones, or hiding on the back, so, we were without any service at all! Our waitress with the name "opilane" was the worst in all my life! Don't spend your time in this place - there's no reason for it!More

It was our first visit and a bit dissappointing one as we expected a bit more from the food establishment located in the heart of the city. It looks a bit aged from outside and inside, nothing appealing at all. We ordered some Indian cheese...with spicy sauce and big shrimps, An Indian cheese was fabulous, highly recommended! Service was very good, fast and friendly.More

Went to Elevant after some years. It was a disappointment. The prices have gone up significantly and the quality of food was adequate. Ordered popodums to start (to share between 3 people) and they brought out 1 popodum (??) with three sauces and a pile...of salad. When we enquired why there was only one popodum when we orderd popodums, the waitress rather coldly responded that we can order extras... When we explained thatif they serve a large amount of dipping sauces with one popodum, there is not much point to the sauces and that it can’t possibly be chraper for them to serve salad instead of a few more of the popodums, she said that this is how they always serve it... 🤨.. Now there is clearly no doubt by far the best Indian restaurant in Tallinn is Chakra!More

Do not try this restaurant if you are looking for Indian food. None of the dishes we ordered were actually tasted anything close to Indian food. Complimentary breads were very hard to eat. Paneer Makhani was horrible. We couldn't finish even one dish. Even mango...lassi wasn't good enough.More

The three moose curry dishes we ordered were variable: the one with spinach tasted the best, the one with nuts was too boring, the normal curry was good but a bit too much kardemom and cloves. Since we like very spicy food we probably should...have ordered the vindaloo. Overall the food was too rich in fat, even the okra and the bread. The salad was a disappointment, very boring, not expected in an Indian restaurant. Service was slow, but it was rather busy and we got free tea to make up for it.More

I have tried veg cuisine and it was better than expected. Normally I eat chicken in Indian restaurant but this time checked chana Dal which served with rice and chapati. You can try this restaurant if you are nearby old town. All the best!!

The service was friendly and quick. I thought 11 euro was very fair for my meal. Veggie vindaloo came with small salad, naan, rice. It was good but I think it was maybe caraway that was just overpowering. Spoiled it for me. Spiciness was perfect.
