I agree with some of the other comments. Have all reviewers actually tasted Indian food before? It took rather a long time for our starters to arrive, so we looked forward to freshly cooked food & we weren't disappointed. Four different starters and four lovely...More

Been to Sapana a couple of times and was never disappointed. Food is delicious, place is cosy and service is excellent. Best Indian restaurant on the islands.

No, really it is. Sapana means 'dream' in Hindi. Being a particularly cold evening in December we thought we'd break protocol and try an Indian. The restaurant is small but also warm, cosy and charming. In the summer there are plenty of tables outside to...More

I ordered a take away so I cannot speak for the dining experience as a whole. From my standpoint it was not the worst Indian I have ever had in Malta but certainly not the best. I don't know how it stacks up to other...More

The food is always fresh and mouth watering. The service is quick and the staff are really friendly. How good is this restaurant? It's always full, if you don't reserve a table, it will be difficult to eat there.

A cosy small restaurant that serves authentic Indian food. In summer you can dine al fresco with spectular view of Xlendi bay. The only restaurant in Gozo which specializes in Indian food. A local favourite and a must to try.
