Quite a nice place in a good location, pretty good service and decent Indian food. Since we have visited 20 Indian restaurants in different countries, I can say that this place is OK. Not the best.

Came upon this restaurant by accident whilst wandering around Gastown, but we did fancy an Indian meal and this fitted the bill! Good service and good basic food, with a nice table by the window so we could continue to "people watch".

I ordered a lamb curry and some naan and loved the food, the location and feel of the restaurant and the service. If you like Indian food, this is the place to eat in Vancouver!

Reasonable menu, I was rushing, and the food was fine. Rogan Josh, peppery rather than hot in an Indian style but fine. Very good garlic naan helped it down. Service was attentive and in no way overbearing. I really dont know what to expect from...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
