I found this restaurant in the main street just out of the Iwakuni station, a 5 min walk (maybe they have moved from the originally reported map?). I went for lunch and the nam is a big size one. They have 3 types of set menus (750 to 1,000yen at lunch time) as well as individual plates. It was a... More

This was my favorite Indian Restaurant in Iwakuni. They sell individual dishes or platters for 2+ people. The guys are from India and speak English very well. I'd go here at least once a month and would fly back just for their food!

When I was stationed in Japan, we ate here all of the time. My favorite was and still is the soft but crispy garlic naan and chicken saag, spicy level 6 or 7. We're back again visiting and the food is still amazing! They have cleaned up the place a bit too, and I'm sad we won't have enough time... More

This is not one of those places I would have visited had it not smelled absolutely mouthwatering as we passed by. The restaurant is very small, especially at the entrance where things were flat out uncomfortable, but still we were willing to risk a bit of comfort to experience the food. The food was good although I was disappointed with... More

Great Indian cuisine. The naan was made right in front of us and was delicious. I felt it was a little pricey based on the amount of food we got. The restaurant is a small whole in the wall off a covered mall.
