it was one of my favourite lunch places in Tallinn. With its unusual interior design, good service and excellent food, it's worth every penny!

Good selection on offer, all food we had very good and a wide ranging drinks menu. Despite some reviews saying it's pricey by Tallinn standards, its still cheaper than many restaurants in the Old Town.

I love Indian and this restaurant was quite on par with some of the best restaurants I've been to around the world. With a large menu with a great variety of dishes, this place is a must visit!

Me and my boyfriend celebrated our anniversary here. We had heard that they serve spicy food. Usually when they say that something is spicy, then for us it's nothing special. Here we orderd chicken in hot spicy sauce and it was AMAZING ;) We got that same spicy curry what we are used to eat at home. So when you... More

Second visit to this place. In my opinion the place is quite similar to other indian restaurants I've visited, nothing special. Food was good, but the personnel wasn't so friendly, I mean no smiling and after greeting us they just continued chatting with each other, it took a while to get menu etc.

Very nice interior, great food for good price. Friendly staff, if we are ever back in Tallinn, we would come back to this place. The only let down was the bread which comes with the meal, it was deep fried meaning it was greasy and heavy - not even close to the normal delicious traditional naan breads. We had 2... More

I had the moose kathi kebab which was absolutely delicious. The mean wasn't traditional kebab meat but more of a slow roasted/braised meat which was fantastic. The kebab itself was huge and only cost 9.80 euros so it was such great value

This restaurant was recommended by one of my clients when she heard I was visiting Tallinn. I was not expecting much-so what a surprise. I had chicken Korma with nan and vegetable Samosa for appetizer. Service and food were excellent. Atmosphere was nice--novel to go up a spiral staircase to get to the restaurant.

There are a lot of grat restaurants in Tallinn. This place is certainly not of them. It is a canteen. During sunny day that interior is just devastating. Service awful. They put outside tables as reserved, just because they are too lazy to bring food downstairs. Menu is not great and it is not flexible. Food. Chicken was underfried, it... More
