The food was excellent. We had the vindaloo, butter chicken, mixed tandoori and rice. But our server was not so helpful. We had to flag him down to get any service and the food arrived sporadically. If I lived in Penticton it would be a great take away food restaurant

Not the most estheticly pleasing place but the food is excellent. The flavours of authentic Italian cuisine make ones mouth water just remembering our last visit.

My favorite world-food is Indian, but it's hard to get really good Indian food from any of their many provincial styles. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit and more re. flavors and service, but on the two times we visited, my wife and I both experienced upset sleep deep into the night. I will return to see if it... More

An excellent meal. Not London quality but very, very close. We had all our usual suspects, Chicken Tikka Masala, Palak Paneer, Dal, Kofta and all were delicious, appropriately spiced. The naan was perfect. We stopped in, ordered, left, came back at time indicated all was piping hot and ready. Definitely one of the best Indian meals we've had outside of... More

Best Indian food I ever ate. I wish they would do a little something more with the Decore it has so much potential to be even better than it is.

We visited the restaurant around 5pm on a Saturday evening and there were only 2 customers in the restaurant. Several tables had "reserved" signs but some did not. We were told to have a seat at a table in the centre of the restaurant. We stated our preference ... a table next to the wall that didnt have a reservation... More

Had to wait an extra 30 min for a pick up order, however it was all worth it in the end. The staff were very friendly and apologized for the wait. The chicken in both our curries were tender and juicy! Great flavor and good portions = Awesome Value. Would love to dine in next time.

We visited with friends a couple of weeks ago. The lunch buffet was adequate, and the food pretty average, but good.

We had reservations for four; we got there on time and a waitress showed us where to sit and handed us menus. Then she and the other employee ( or owner?) continued cleaning other tables. After at least ten minutes we asked her if we could order drinks, were told "I'm not your waitress, but go ahead, we've been very... More
