Having unusual food preferences due to allergies usually makes eating out tricky, but the very knowledgeable and attentive chef, maitre d' and staff were extremely helpful and the resulting meal was superb. I highly recommend a visit to this Indian restaurant that boasts a full menu from every corner of India. The food is also reasonably priced which was an... More

Excelent indian food from north to south. Not to pricy, very good ambiance and staff very friendly. dificulta to access by walk, the best option when you get to Katara to take a golf car and be dropped there.

I have visited this restaurant on a few occasions now and it never fails to impress. The starters are delicious along with the main. I would say that the only negative would be the prices. If you're out for a treat then this is a must.

A very well located restaurant with all authentic Indian dishes made using original indian ingredients and served with the traditional Indian respect for the guests - Atithi Devo Bhav! Staff are very welcoming and have a well trained approach towards service. No complains whatsoever. All in all a very good value for money and highly recommended.

The portions are very good size, we were so full. The food is delicious and hot. We ordered lamb chops and a chicken with rice. You get complimentary soup and popadoms with dips which is tasty. The staff are polite.

Had dinner with a business colleague. Food was the excellent quality - usual Vineet Bhatia standard. Located in the Katara area - was quiet when we visited. Downside: no alcohol served.

Indian cuisine located in katara. The tables and the chairs are totally irrelevant to the rest of the interior design for an Indian restaurant. We took bryiani which was nice, lentils which were average and a dish with chicken which was below average. The service is fair, mainly because some of the staff don't understand English. A lot of noise... More

I would say a 7 star restaurant, try the Katara branch. In a very nice location, along with 2 more restaurants, each with completely different cuisine. But this one is unique with its tasty, delicious recipies; mainly the Biriani. Appetizers nothing like them, the soup OMG, types of complementary bread killer. Just don't miss that...don't forget Katara branch
