We ate here twice during our trip, and would definitely return again! This is how Indian food should taste. I miss the pani puri and their curries. Service is also great! And the plate of biryanis are huge.

Went once,although not sure again. For first time it was great. Tried dosas which was a first for me. But it gets to you after a while. A bit too rich. Please dont order biryani at an indian resturant,rather make it at home.

Very good Dosa's prepared in the heart of Joburg's indian community. The Dosas are good (crispy and the masala is just right) however the idli was hard and tasteless.

Whatever you eat here you must have a Dosa- the Masala dosa is a staple and a meal on its own. Every meal here is great - the food is prepared in the open and it's a clean restaurant. Try the Breyani, Mutton Curry and...More
