Even if the milieu reminds more of a fast food restaurant, the Indian food was authentic, very tasty and surprisingly cheap. Also a very moderate waiting time compared to many other places - without compromising freshness. We ended up dining here twice on our two-night stay in Dar.

Excellent south indian and gujrati cuisine at a very reasonable price. The dosas, idlis and the gujrati thali's are amongst the very tasty dishes on offer. The sweets of typical indian style and taste are a few specialities at this place.

The food here is just average and cheap. Apart from value for money, the dishes lack spices and there is no ambiance. The restaurant is clean and well managed.

This place is well maintained and is a good option if you're looking to go out and have food with your family. The food is Okay It'll be good if you can maintain your washroom as well properly.

Awesome indian food joint for the lovers of fast-food as well for thali and in weekends you can also enjoy Chinese counter outside with street sitting arrangements which is very common in Dar Es Salaam streets..... but sweets of Cashew nuts is incomparable and savouries are too good .... its a must visit place for Indian Fast-food lovers

Despite the anti-Pakistani rhetoric screaming on the TV installed in the café, the food was a finger-lickin' food. We had the masala dosa, bhajiya, Pani Puri, sev puri and chaas (a yogurt based drink). The host was gracious and courteous! Must visit place!

Thank Shabbir E
