In general I am not a huge fan of Indian food, but I though while walking by why not ? The food was so good and with the excellent service, if they moved it to a better location, they could easily charge double. This place is a haven on a street notorious for slop meals.

Food is really good, amazing chicken Korma! A bit disappointed by the place, not very well decorated for the prices of the dishes we would expect something better. Very good service. Good place overall.

A bustling restaurant in the heart of backpacker area. The food is authentic, decently priced and good. Not the greatest Indian but overall we were satisfied with all of our dishes. It should take care of your Indian food fix if neeeded

the indian food here is excellent! i had low expectations being in Vietnam (for Indian food), but trusted the reviews on here and was very pleased. extremely good prices too - this was just as good (if not better) than the vast majority of indian food in the states, but much cheaper. definitely worthwhile if you are in the area...

Fast and attentive service, great atmosphere, and the best indian food in Vietnam. You can request what level of spice you like and food tastes fresh and very flavourful. It's just simple, easy and delicious!

We ate here twice in our 4 days in HCMC. The portions are filling, the food was best Indian in Vietnam and the restaurant was always busy. The staff were attentive and cheerful!
