The service was very good but the food was inconsistent in its taste. We ordered 4 dishes - 2 were good (carrot ginger soup and the nan bread) but the other 2 were bad (chicken tikka masala which was different from any chicken tikka masala we have ever had, and tasteless vegetarian samosa). Also - quite expensive.

First, please allow me to say the food and service was so great that my group and myself went back the next day for more. As a vegan, I seek out great eateries and finds. Although, this restaurant is not vegan, there are great vegan options as well as information. The appetizers, and main courses sent my taste buds soaring.... More

This is an Indian restaurant and whosoever likes Indian Spices, this is the place. The ambience is also well made and the food is typically Indian. The quantity served was huge so before ordering think twice before you order more. I liked this place and therefore went twice. The lassi (salted yoghurt) was very good. Must go if you are... More

My husband daughter and I had a wonderful meal here this evening. The food was so flavoursome and it's not your usual run of the mill Indian. The staff could not have been more attentive. Would recommend this restaurant for a good night out

The Restaurant was almost full when we arrived. You could smell the lovely spices as you entered. The waiter / maitre dee was knowledgeable and friendly. My wife wanted a fish curry and was offered a Fish Madras that was not on the menu. This was very tasty , my Lamb Vindaloo as well. Food was served hot and the... More

Good Indian food in a quiet ally tucked away in a busy spot. Do ask for your entire order be confirmed back to you to ensure there aren't any stuff added / misunderstandings..

Decent enough Indian restaurant in the heart of the city. Was there with a group of office colleagues. The evening we went unfortunately the air conditioning wasn't working. Food was fine, little on the extra oil side! But the naan bread was nice. Do go there if you are an Indian tourist longing for Indian food!!

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
