The food was average. They said tandoori dishes were their specialty, But it seems they boil the chicken first and then give the finishing touches on the Tandoor. That also meant it was not fresh. We ordered bottles of wine. They brought them already open and did not offer to taste. We were a group of 10 or so, and... More

The restorant is nice. The food is in general ok. Unfortunately the lamb was overcooked and the mango chutney is not more than a thickened nango juice. It's definitely not home made. Service is a little bit lousy and very customer orientated. What a pity... Do I recommend this restaurant, yes, but one has to consider price/quality. The dishes are... More

Third time we go there and it still pleases us. Do not go for the surroundings: it's located on a busy road, the interior kept the decorations of the previous Chinese restaurant, and it is far from cosy. BUT the food is really worth it. We had onion bahjee, veggie samosa, bhuna chicken, saag wala chicken, jeera rice and peshawri... More

Starting 2015, this restaurant has a new menu with some South Indian dishes along with the previously available North Indian dishes. The new additions in the menu are usually not available in other Indian restaurants. We found the taste of North Indian food was more in line with the traditional taste compared to the South Indian food (which was quite... More

Not a typical combination, but if you are in a group, and not everyone likes Indian food, then this is a reasonable choice. Basically it is an Indian restaurant, but they also serve pizzas. Being a vegetarian, an Indian restaurant is always a safe choice if you are not on home territory. Not particularly spicy, but very tasty

We ordered take-away food twice, thinking we would not write a proper review from the first and only order. We ordered two dishes online, and were called via the phone to check whether we would like naan bread or rice with our order. Turns out we had to pay additionally, which wasn't mentioned over the phone. The actual dishes were... More

We got a meal at 30 € / person that did not correspond with the offer from groupon ( tandoori chicken in the offer was replaced with marsala chicken heated in the micro wave). Aweful. There were just 2 other people in the whole restaurant.

The Spanish restaurant was closed down en now Indian flavours fill this place, friendly staff, worth a visit if you're too lazy to cook yourself.
