The service are great and the staff were really service minded and polite. The taste is great and have a wide selection of how spicy you want it. It’s in the pricey range but worth it

A very friendly restaurant and nice atmosphere. This is probably among the best Indish food you can get in Norway. It is easy to reccomend this family owned place.
