Fingers still dyed red after a couple of days, cant seem to wash it off. When I visited, there was no water available due to non supply from water board. Thats OK, but... More

Excellent Food! Great Service! Very Authentic! Highly Recommend!! Our service ask our heat preference, and the food came out as requested -- a bit hot, but not overwhelming. And very tasty. Would definitely go back!

It's 3 years since I last visited, and what a pleasure. The place is always busy with a nice vibe. The food is consistently excellent. It was a busy "Mother's Day" in Malawi, and probably explained why the service level slipped.

Hands down 4.5 rating. Great service. All items on the menu cooked just fine. The menu even mentions popular items. Bit on the oily side. But oil is a friend of Indian dishes. So no worries about the oil. The manager makes sure service and quality are impeccable. The chutneys especially fresh made mint sauce has varied taste in different... More

We were a large group of people (25). We were accommodated happily with little fuss. No one was concerned re the noise we made.The food was plentiful, quick & tasty. Great service. We ended up going there 3 times in our 5 night stay in Blantyre.
