Took a long time for food to be delivered, and always packed 24 hours a week. Make sure to try other indian restaurant nearby instead of kapitan. The waiting time is very long and the food is not living its fame,so sorry

I can only say, that the food at the restaurant is excellent, I cannot read the question of Danial , but from Farah's translation, that he did not have a good experience, that is a pity, maybe he should go back another time... More
