We had ordered butter chicken and lo and behold there was a big chunk of a magnet in it, when we tried to tell the owner he said its "iron and good for health", and made us pay for the whole meal and did but apologize😡😡. Baselers be aware of this horrible quality control....

Used to live at the corner of this restaurant, Food is very nice, maybe a little bit heavy. Tasty and very well served. I still prefer Jay's for Indian food, but besides that, this is a very good option too.

Visited for a relaxed dinner with a few friends who know the culture and cooking well. 2 appetizers and 2 dishes served us well. The food was tasty. The service was less enthusiastic, although the owner was very warm. It made for a mice over all meal, and a good place to chill with friends. The price point was fair... More

Amina met us at the door, found us a sear without a reservation on a busy Saturday, and served us spectacular Indian cuisine, best I've had anywhere in the world. The food was great and Amina made the whole experience so much fun.

I've been to this restaurant with my friend yesterday. We have planned to order some nice authentic Biryani but the waitress suggested to try their Buffet which was very popular. (Perfect choice) For around 40 Francs I would say we got a perfect deal . The starters were amazing and my favourite was the lamb and prawn manchurian. Service: As... More

We were a group of 5 Indians, and choose this place for dinner. The food was not at all good. Dal which we ordered came without tadka. We ordered indian breads, and while getting the breads it fell on the ground, and our order was further delayed. We did not really like any currys. We ordered an ice cream, and... More

I stopped in here for dinner on a warm summer night, and saw that every table was occupied on their small terrace. So I went inside. What a mistake! I was given a table behind some sort of ugly brown screen, handed a menu by the waitress, and that was the end of it! I was totally forgotten and ignored.... More
