including during my trips to India. The Mix veg and butter chicken are my favourites. Make sure you order the rumali basket masala to share for a starter, it's delicius. Service depends om which waitor you happen to get, some are super, others are incredibly unattentive. But in the end that doesn't matter much, because the kitchen is efficient and... More

It's the smartest of Blantyre Indian eateries. The food is very good, although it is not my favourite. The service is nice. I will come back.

Excellent food but waiter service was poor. Their rumali roti is a very nice starter followed by Paneer and crispy chicken Chinese style and tawa prawns. The mixed grill sizzling is always very nice which is a new addition to their menu the tawa prawns dish is also very good.

This restaurant was opposite our hotel but we debated eating here as it didn't look very nice from the outside but though dated inside it was clean and the food was delicious. The starters were my favourite - try the Masala Baskets never seen anything like it before - it's like a huge poppadom in a basket shape - but... More

Fab, interesting and tasty starters in this restaurant. They were the most interesting part of my meal. I found the prices a little high overall, but the food was quality.

I wanted to give good rating to this but have no option, Giant masala papad, i never seen before this big, nice ambiance, staff is good and respond really well, Best Indian restaurant in Blantyre, though they use too much food color, all food we ordered was quite good, value for money compare to other restaurants around.

The food here is very good, everything seemed fresh and all our group enjoyed the food. I think this place is a bit more expensive than other restraunts but the food seemed fresh, and the restaurant was mainly patroned by local indians which is always a good sign.

Service is good and attentive. Portion size is good. Not as authentic as others claim, but not bad either. Main problem is amount of food coloring used. Fingers still dyed red after a couple of days, cant seem to wash it off. When I visited, there was no water available due to non supply from water board. Thats OK, but... More
