Excellent little restaurant we came across on a recent visit to Sofia. There were 14 of us and they catered adequately for a group of that size. Food was okay, found mine a little salty, but generally everyone was more than happy with the fare

We ordered two different curries and they both tasted the same. They were standard Indian dishes found in every Indian restaurant but they still got it completely wrong. Will never visit the place again.
