A Samoan recommended this place for lunch and it did not disappoint. They had a variety of curries and you can change the spice level. The curries range from around 16 to 25, depending on the type of meat. It was not expensive and decent price for the value of the food. You have to order bread or rice separately... More

Good selection of dishes, particularly vegetarian options. The breads were very good and generous servings.

Although chicken curry is a staple in Samoa, this is where the real curry is found with all the parantha roti and condiments etc that you would want from any great curry house around the world....when the palate is bored and needs a rev this is the place...in the middle of a small unassuming hotel in the centre of Apia's...

The waitress was friendly, the food was scrumptious, and how to prove that? My whole family went there three times within two weeks! The variety from hot spicy to mild and creamy, the colours from the spices, the textures, all such a beautiful blend with each other! Hoping to go there again (very) soon!

It is great to see indian food cooked traditionally. The chef uses a tandoor for cooking roti and tandoori chicken. The curry themselves were okay...some lacked flavour. Not a biggie for an overall good dining response. Food does take some time to come out as I suspect there is only one chef working.

Best Indian food in Samoa. I love this place. Doesn't take too long for the food to be ready and service is great and friendly. Affordable too. Doing this review is only making me crave.

we ate dinner here and although the restaurant wasn't in the prettiest location, the decor wasn't the prettiest and our waitress wasn't really friendly, we had an outstanding meal. (Lanb Korma, Dahl, freshly made naan breads, samosas, spring rolls and onion pakora. To find this restaurant, head inland up Fugalei St (Where the Toyota Dealer is), it's a 5 min... More

The Food was great however it took so long to wait. But i gotta say it was worth the wait. I would go there over and over again. Gotta try the Samboosa. They are huge and very tasty. It could be your starch as you enjoy a curry dish. that's what i would do. even better add on a side... More

If you have an evening spare, I think Tifaimoana's would be a nice place to go. Unfortunately, I had a plane to catch and it took an hour for my dinner to arrive. Of what I did taste of it, it seemed good and authentic. What a pity...

Not many options for Vegetarian or Gluten Free - But these guys do a great job with offering a nice variety of Vegetarian choices plus gluten free (ask for the items made with Chick Pea flour). I personally am not 100% Vegan gluten free (Mon - Fri) so if I am lucky enough to go here on a weekend love... More
