Came upon this restaurant by accident whilst wandering around Gastown, but we did fancy an Indian meal and this fitted the bill! Good service and good basic food, with a nice table by the window so we could continue to "people watch".

I ordered a lamb curry and some naan and loved the food, the location and feel of the restaurant and the service. If you like Indian food, this is the place to eat in Vancouver!

If you're a vegetarian like me and wanting authentic indian food in gastown...look no further. Not the best in town (I love Vij's, My Shanti, a couple of haunts on Main etc.) but definitely up there!

Location is great but food and service do not do justice to the location. The owner has to put some love and passion into it. Butter chicken and other dishes the three of us ordered were not hit with us. Nothing bad but nothing outstanding...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
