I went with my business associates from Europe & USA for dinner to this restaurant as we were staying close to Greenbelt Mall and were looking for a change from the routine dinners during the week. I was told by the local colleague that Indian Cuisine does not find favour among Philippians, but at the end we were all satisfied with the quality and quantity of food served along with drinks. Masala Papad was quite tasty but spicy for my friends. Otherwise, the crisp Naan and accompanying subjis went well with our pallets.

Stumbled upon this restaurant at the heart of shopping district in Makati. Absolutely loved the choice food we ordered. Portions were med-large and importantly it was delicious and freshly made. Price is slightly on the high side but worth it if you are going with a crowd as you can share the food. Will definitely visit again

Been there about ten times during 2017.
Would love to see some change.

Average reception.

Comfortable interior.

Mix of attitudes among the (slow) staff ranges from busy to indifferent.
Never detected as much as a smile. Except from the Owner who supervises his crew (a plus).

Huge choice of dishes to choose from.
Indian and Mediterranean did not convince.
But Persian does.

We rate it as good (not average).

Delicious marinated kabobs served with a really good chili sauce. A dish with 2 kabobs with rice is enough to share with another. The juice drinks are good. Try the dalandan shake which has a deeper calamansi taste. Careful to tell server if you only want one drink. They'll refresh your drinks without asking and charge you for it. Naan is ok .

The menu is extensive and you will have a difficult time trying to decide what to order. I would recommend sharing an entree with a salad or appetizer.
