We love this restaurant and don't go often enough. The chicken tikka masala and mixed vegetable korma are two of our favourites. The service is friendly and attentive. We thought the food was delicious and authentic. Definitely a hidden gem for great Indian food in Waterloo!

Close to my workplace, been there for lunch few times. Not very authentic indian food but curry tastes differently good. Lunch special comes with chicken soup, chicken or lamb curry(with mushrooms in it) and you can choose either basmati rice or a Naan bread. Value for money. Service is okay not very friendly or either harsh. There is always an... More

I have been there twice for lunch as it is very close to my workplace. The first time I went there, ordered Chicken tikka masala and they served me almost raw chicken with gravy. I really wanted to give them another chance, so, went there second time. The restaurant was sort of busy and there were 3 old guys serving.... More

I so badly want to like this place since I have fond memories of eating here years ago when it had amazing owners who knew customer service at its finest & back then the food was top-notch, plentiful & fresh. Sadly, with current owners & staff this once shining gem of a restaurant is now a dull, cheap wanna be.... More

After a couple of day having a meal without rice. Finally we found this place which is quite good for thei Middle east dishes (kebabs, biryani..etc) Not far from my HQ office even by walking. Good price.

Reasonably priced and tasty menu. My wife enjoyed the butter chicken and I had a good variety with the tandoori platter. Staff were friendly and helpful. We will be going back. :-)

Usually I'd order from menu but in the mood for anything, opted for a "9 course" dinner. First 3 courses consisted of a cracker, half a bowl of soup ("this is very good soup," the waiter advised us as he served it) and a glass of tap water. I really didn't mind, confident the meal would be plenty to eat... More

This place is amazing. All the meat dishes are boneless and high quality with no fat. The wine was reasonably priced. The whole meal (bottle of wine, apps, mains and dessert) was $65 + tip. The service was outstanding.

I wasn't keen on Indian food, but my son took us to a Bangladeshi / Indian restaurant in Waterloo, Ontario. I was surprised of how tasty the Tandoori chicken wings that we had as an appetizer. There was very little hint of curry, and it wasn't spicy at all. For entrees, we had beef, lamb, and shrimp Kohra dishes. These... More
