Perhaps the best Indian food I have ever had. The mix of spices was masterful to say the least. I recommend emphatically

We, me and my wife, had our Iftaar dinner last Saturday, May 01, 2021; amazing service; excellent menu, super food quality; yes it costs a bit more than average but every penny is worth it. We are so happy we connected with Mr. Adam there; an exceptional person who served us very well; even the owner visited us; the top notch item was their Prawn Biryani, super tasty. Love it. worth visiting again and again.

Happy to join in the positive reviews. My boyfriend and I had dinner here the other night on a stopover in Mombasa. The staff were very friendly and helped us with selecting some food, and what we got was very tasty. I had the palak paneer and he had a chicken curry dish. The manager (?) was also very helpful in identifying appropriate dishes for me as I’m also gluten intolerant, which was much appreciated. Delicious food at a good price. If I’m back in the area, I’ll definitely stop by again.

We had a lovely evening meal here, I was craving some real indian food so hunted this place down as soon as awe arrived in Mombasa and it didn't dissappint!

Lovely staff and the food was perfect. They're only open until 7pm atm because of the curfew.

I had a veg biryani and it was very tasty although the prices are pretty 'pricey'. the split a/c mounted at a very high altitute from the ground level so, it wasn't effective, but they are nice to provide you with a pedestal fan near you. The Indian yoghurt drink Mango lassi was very good here. my colleague had chicken biryani and he said it was pretty tasty. Since the prices are a bit high, you will be greeted by the owner of the restaurant and also by the chef who would inquire about the quality of your food and taste. Indian style of marketing. Overall, it is worth going there for the taste of the food.
