Fab, interesting and tasty starters in this restaurant. They were the most interesting part of my meal. I found the prices a little high overall, but the food was quality.

I wanted to give good rating to this but have no option, Giant masala papad, i never seen before this big, nice ambiance, staff is good and respond really well, Best Indian restaurant in Blantyre, though they use too much food color, all food we ordered was quite good, value for money compare to other restaurants around.

The food here is very good, everything seemed fresh and all our group enjoyed the food. I think this place is a bit more expensive than other restraunts but the food seemed fresh, and the restaurant was mainly patroned by local indians which is always a good sign.

Service is good and attentive. Portion size is good. Not as authentic as others claim, but not bad either. Main problem is amount of food coloring used. 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
