Every dish we had was outstanding. Each was complex with the right ingredients to make it memorable. Probably the best I've had in a long time. It's popular but we were seated quickly. Dishes we loved were dhal, lamb vindaloo, eggplant tikka masala, palak paneer....More

I've struggled to find good Indian food on island, so was excited when a buddy to me about this place, which she swore by. Unfortunately, my experience didn't live up to the hype. I ordered the fish masala curry and, while I got a lot...More

Based on food alone, this is probably one of the best Indian restaurants I've ever been to. All the dishes I've eaten have been outstanding. Flavorful, creamy sauces and fluffy naan. The rice is an absolute highlight of eating here. It has an incredible saffron...More

We stayed in Waikiki, on Ala Wai Boulevard and were looking for a local restaurant with local people. I saw this on Tripadvisor and we walked there. It was great. Busy but didn't need a booking. Decent prices, not the overcharged tourist stuff. Fabulous food....More
