Take the South Exit from Shinjuku Station for this restaurant. Food is individually prepared and tasty at this long established Indian restaurant. The curries are varied (mutton, chicken, vegetarian, and seafood); combo dinners priced around 1700 yen come with either chicken tikka or a samosa; the chicken tikka is spicy and tender. Nan is made on site and is perfect... More

A good vareity of vegetrian and non vegetrian food. We asked to moderate the spiciness of the dishes and that's the exact spiciness level we were looking for. The staff was kind and helpful. We highly recommend the butter nan.

The quantity is good, Chole(Chic peas curry) is awesome.

Good if you urgently need an Indian food fix. The Naan bread was a bit too sweet and too soft unlike the ones I have had normally. Rice did not seem to be basmati, but of the same texture as sushi rice. Dishes were ok.

Excellent vegetarian and meat thali set menus as well as a la carte, all for under JPY2000. One of the few vegetarian options in Tokyo. Good English spoken by British Indian owner.

Excellent Indian curries, including set meal meat or vegetable Thali, the latter being suitable for vegetarians, for under JPY2000. One of the few places in Tokyo where you can get a vegetarian meal. Owner is British Indian and speaks good English.
