The food is okay, but there are much better Indian restaurants in Kuching. The food is slightly overpriced for what you get and we ordered a side dish which cost a ridiculous amount on our final bill. Also, when we went, the card machine wouldn't work and this caused an issue. We had the amount in cash (minus 1 Ringitt)... More

Food is good and is authentic, thanks to a chef from India. The service is very friendly, though sometimes short-handed.

We have been in the Kuching area for a couple of weeks and visiting various areas and sampling different cuisines. Decided to experience Indian at the restaurant level... We sat outside for lunch. We have traveled in India and Sri Lanka and essentially eat solely subcontinental food at home. This place boasted an impressive and authentic vegetarian selection on the... More

Good points: fast service, relatively friendly. Bad points: very small portions, not very tasty ( I guess this is subjective), watered down chutneys,odd smell in restaurant. Very expensive for what you get. Just feels they try and cut corners to maximize profits. Go to King Curry instead.

I went on a quiet night and it was a bit awkward sitting in the restaurant alone. The AC wasn't doing much, so I was sweating profusely, and the owners (I think) were sitting behind a desk chatting and watching things on their phones. The wait staff though were delightful - smiley and helpful. The food was ok. Tasty enough,... More

Garlic Naan and Cheese Naan are must tries! Good to pair with with the Thandori Chicken Lambada. Meal for four (4) persons will just cost you RM50.

Came here for dinner after reading about Lyn's in Lonely Planet and we loved it! The owner was friendly and all the staff polite & professional. And the food was excellent, have eaten Indian food in a lot of places and this was up there with the best. Loads of choice, especially with Paneer (love it), just a shame more... More

Went on a Sunday night.Very quiet.Nice cold beer and very nice bottle of wine.Service very good and friendly place I would describe food as competent. Place needs a bit of a makeover.Its a bit daggy and old fashioned. Chef is obviouly good but perhaps to many choices on menu.Its very hard to choose.Probably need to narrow and refine the choice....

We expect much for this place however we ordered couple dishes and Naan one of them was butter chicken.. but was anything what you want except butter chicken... if you r an Hindu restaurant and butter chicken is not prepared well so stay away of them. Worst ever!!!
