We had lunch here with a great ambience . We had been to almost all their branches in Bali and all the places provide a great ambience and taste , of course the price is also not exorbitant . The staff were very polite and we had ordered only vegan food and all days that we had here had a different menu . The staff were courteous to provide the menu options and suggest some dishes .

The restaurant is very close to the Monkey Forest. You can visit the Monkey Forest, and drop by here for good Indian food. The prices are also affordable.

If your Indian and want Indian food don't go there! I think it's direspectful to Indian's. I have tried Indian from India and Fijian Indian and this taste's nothing like there food. The food looks the color but has none of the flavor of there herbs and spices. Very bland and and European, sure you might taste chilli but none of the real masala or turmeric, Cumin, Mustard seeds, ECT ECT ECT!

Went here for dinner tonight and honestly this was the worst Indian food we have ever tried. Started with masala tea which had so much of masala added to it that the tea tasted bitter!! Ordered chicken biryani, Rogan Josh and chilli chicken all of which were tasteless and definitely not what the names suggest. Asked one of the waiters if WiFi was available and were told WiFi isn't working when in actual fact WiFi was working perfectly fine they just did not want to give out the login details. Should have just said WiFi isn't available to customers instead of lying! Over priced for what's rated as less than an average experience...600,000 IDR. Really bad experience and would not recommend this place to anyone who wants to eat some real authentic Indian food!

I had visited their branch in Jakarta and it was one of best Indian meals I had ever eaten. You can read my review on tjst branch.

So I guess expectations was high when we went to visit their Ubud, BALI branch.

First of all the restaurant layout is very nice and spacious. These are different levels and you can see the road from where you are sitting.

Now, the food. We ordered Dosa, butter naan, tandoori chicken and butter chicken. For drinks a sweet lassi and a water for myself.
The dosa was good. I would rate it 4/ 5.
Chicken tandoori I would give 1/5. The worst thing you can do to chicken is overcook it. The meat was dry and it felt like it was sittig somewhere for a while and just re-heated.
The tandoori bread I would give a 2/5. Good restaurants serve fluffy, pipping hot bread. This was flat and tasteless.
Butter chicken was good. A 3.5/5.
Overall, I was very disappointed at the level of food served here.

Would I come back ? Not likely. I have no problem paying for high quality dishes. But to pay around Rs. 700,000 for mediocre food is upsetting.
