The food was delicious and tasted authentically Indian. The service was friendly and efficient and the restaurant was inviting and comfortable. The four of us had different dishes which were all excellent and reasonably priced. Very recommendable.

This place was such a disappointment.... Went with really average expectations and couldn't eat my food. Starter was a salad which was nice but then we got the main course which was lamb curry - the meat was 50% fat and when i said i can't eat it i was not offered to replace it with another dish, just heard...

Generous menu, large variety of chicken, lamb, beef, fish dishes... some very flavoury, some spicy... surely everyone can find something to his / her liking! Nan, butter nan is a must... and don't worry about not having enough rice as a side... More

I was staying overnight in Darmstadt (Ramada, 10 minutes footwalk from Shalimar) and visited this indian restaurant for dinner. The restaurant layout is the same as in literally every indian restaurant with all the indian style stuff: indian style chairs, wall covers etc. - even the temperature inside the trstauramt was indian style: quite warm. But it was a hot... More

Every time I come to Darmstadt, which happens quite often for business (4-6 times / year) this is a must. I found out this place quite a few years ago thanks to an indian colleague and since then I always paid at least one visit per stay. Everything is delicious, the owner is exquisite in suggesting and kindly guiding through... More

I felt like having some Indian food after a month in Germany. The place was full of Germans, so it was a good sign from the start. The food to me felt authentic and the staff were friendly. My chicken curry came in a clay pot, and tasted very authentic - loved it. If you look a good atmopshere and... More

Went for lunch with spouse. Food is good. Went for seafood and made a right choice. It is pleasant that this Asian restaurant differs in menu from other ones in Darmstadt! Please renew your utensils, fork was rather bent and rest looked also scratched and tired.

Didn't know what to expect of an Indian restaurant in Germany, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Only drawbacks were that it was perhaps over salted (although that's a matter of taste) and portion sizes, especially for the starters, was small for the price

Decided to try Indian food even though am visiting Germany from India for a few days. The restaurant was really good - food, service and style. The dal and the sabzee in particular was superb. Couldnt think that some of the food was as good as it was and yes, quite reasonably priced.

The proximity to the Darmstadt Ramada was a plus and also walking (15 min) from the main train station. Nice ambiance. Beyond that it was mediocre. The Mango Lassi was nice both in presentation in rustic metal glasses and taste. After that the appetizers (mixed platter) were basic (to be fair, most Indian restaurants do the same). The main dishes... More
