I was quite impressed by the Thali option as well as the a la carte menu that they have. Taste of the food is quite good, very economical and good portions enough for people to eat. If you like Indian food, i would recommend this restaurant.

Surely not recommended as food does not taste good at all. You will have a bad experience of Indian food. We have tried this in Duesseldorf as well. Same bad experience.

Reasonably priced excellent North Indian food. The Butter Chicken and Dal Makhani were particularly delicious. Excellent service, well-set tables, attractive atmosphere such as might be found in a more expensive restaurant. Conveniently located near Rudolf Platz (almost city certre). Lovely experience. Will come back when ever in Cologne!

All these could have cooked atleast 6... More

It was about 10pm when we ate at this restaurant and only two other tables were occupied. One of the other reviews said it was overcrowded. It may depend the time you go. The food was amazing and portions generous. I had the vegetable biryani with cheese and my partner had the chicken and lamb biryani. Add the Merlot wine... More

We went in there for weekday dinner with friends. We did not have a reservation but found a table after a short wait. The place can be easily reached by public transport, we did not have a car so cannot comment on parking availability. The service was very friendly but the time it took to deliver the food to the...

The food is average, I asked for spiced meal but it was almost tasteless (I had to add salt...). It is cheap and the service is sort of ok, but I didn't like that the waiter was cooking with his hand in the kitchen and then handling money.
