I have been going here for years and have had unfailing good service and good quantities for lunch or supper. Several favourites on the menu, Lamb Vindaloo or Butter Chicken and the breads are fresh and tasty with choices. If Vegan try the Spinach Paneer, and do. not pass up the Thali plates at lunch, best value around for a decent lunch. The other choices in town do not offer anything like the same value dollar for dollar, even if they are newer restaurants with as many stars on their ratings.

Upon telling our server we were vegan, she quickly showed us a number of options for dinner. We ordered the madras curry vegetable platter and the Chana masala platter to share our on their cute patio. Both were OUTSTANDING! We will definitely be back and bring others. Some of the best Indian food we have had!

We had a lovely lunch on the patio. My lamb vindaloo was large for lunch but I finished it, along with rice and garlic nann, anyway. My wife had the chicken Korma which although it contained a couple of small pieces of fat she loved. The service was fast and very friendly. Not expensive but also not cheap when you add up the extra charge for rice and the nann. We will return.

Coming from the UK, which has the best (take on) Indian food in the world, we are always apprehensive about going to Indian restaurants abroad. However, on our 6-week road trip of the Pacific Northwest, the curry cravings were becoming too strong and we had to hunt out a good spot for some Indian grub - we were not disappointed! This is an authentic family-run restaurant with a very relaxed atmosphere. The service was friendly, attentive and the waitress was receptive to any questions we may have had about the menu. All of the dishes we sampled were simple but tasty and rich in flavour. A particular favourite of mine was the lamb vindaloo, which although was milder than we are used to at home was delicious! The bill was reasonable and all in all we had a great evening here. I would certainly recommend if you are staying in Nelson.
