This location serves Indian food. Taste different from all the other 'roti shops'. Taste like authentic indian food. Takes some getting used to if you are not familiar with indian spices and food.

In a multicultural city like Paramaribo you can find several places with real indian cuisine much better than this. Even if the prices are so cheap the food is not fresh

I put this place on my list of restaurants I definitely wanted to vsit and I wasn't dissapointed at all. It's real Indian "cuisine" (the cook is from Mumbai). The people who served us was very friendly and helpfull. We had a great chat with all the people there, expecially when they found out that I'm an India addict :-).... More

Excellent quality Indian food, cooked from prime materials and so so natural and so so truly Indian, unlike the anglicised Indian food that you get in the UK, which is much much heavier.

I had read on Tripadvisor that the service would be bad but that it could be this bad really made my jaw drop. I was here during the day with my sister, there was nobody else and they still managed to mess everything up! After ten minutes I went inside to alert them to the fact that we were outside... More

Old food, right from the fridge in the microwave :( Not tasty. Not recommended for vegetarins. But the desserts and sweets are good.

Ambiance is not really the best place to be. Its a home converted to a restaurant. Food is decent. Do not really expect the perfect Indian food. Didn't like some different smelly kind of oil put in curry.
