Unfortunately as of this date, the restaurant has been closed for a couple of months due to a kitchen fire. That said, when I lived in this city I ate here all the time. Some of the best Indian food I have ever eaten. The date when they will open back up is uncertain but if it is open when... More

I enjoyed the curry chicken the best. The staff are friendly and abiding. The only negative was that the prices were... More

Loved the food. I'd call myself a connoisseur of Indian food -- I've had it all over the world including loads in India, and Vij's in Vancouver, and every place you can think of in Toronto. I was SO surprised to find this little outpost in St. John's with delicious, flavourful, fresh and interesting food. It was mouthwateringly good. Yes,... More

The lunch buffet is renowned in St. John's. Plan early if you are going. The food here is heavenly and if you choose from the regular menu you will not be disappointed. We went here on many occasions for lunch and supper and it truly is a wonderful food experience if you love Indian food and spice.

Two years ago my wife and I spent six weeks in India. Our first time there. Our experience was wonderful and the food was wonderful. When we walked into this restaurant on Duckworth Street I was instantly re-living my experience in India. It was the aroma, the atmosphere, and the food that did it. They serve excellent Indian food.
