This place is a nice place to go out with an foreigner. They will cater the menu to the individual palette. Slightly on the high price compared to other North Indian places however the food is good.

Nice place for authentic North Indian food in Colombo city. Food is good and you get the original taste of most of the Indian dishes. Specially Biriyani, Nan Tandoori items and kebabs. You get English / Hindi / Tamil speaking staff.

Good food, and good service in this small restaurant. Not very cosy or romantic. The temperature in the restaurant was too cold (air conditioning).

The food was definitely tasty, but not necessarily the best Indian food I've tasted. For a restaurant which purports to be one of the best of its kind the waiting service was extremely lacklustre if not downright poor and it took an extremely long time to be serviced.
