I used to frequent this takeaway regularly but it deteriorated to the point that I no longer even try their food. A pity because it was really good at one stage. Now the curries consist of bones and little else...

This is the only indian restaurant there in emperors palace, next to peermount Metcourt suites. The food is quite average and not very fresh. There is also a scope for the variety as far as the Buffet goes.

Their choices are delicious and I liked the service. It is a restaurant located in a mall but you feel like a restaurant of high level.
