Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Some of the best Indian food we’ve eaten, and definitely the best Indian restaurant in KK. Stayed at the centre for six days, and ate dinner at this restaurant four times.. Really delicious food and great service !

We loved this restaurant. The hospitality, atmosphere and the food were all unforgettable. The exceptionally rich Butter chicken was dreamy . The vegetables - a real surprise - were a sumptuous mix of fruit and vegetables masterly spiced and cooked well to retain their crunch. The Garlic Nan actually tasted 100% freshly made. My husband is still raving about the clearly fresh samosas with flakey lush pastry. The Kashmiri Naan was also wonderful - crunchy with a subtle sweetness. Everything was wonderful. We were heartbroken when a delay in our return flight to KK meant we had to miss another night. I have a lot of reviews - trust me- THIS is a truly wonderful restaurant run by warm hospitable people who offer unforgettable dining.

Incredible Indian food!! Best in KK for sure! After spending alot of time in India, we can say this is the real deal. They also accommodated wheat allergies and vegan/dairy allergies. The dal tarka is excellent, and the Chana masala superb! The baigan was great and okra and pani puri good as well. And veg pulao. Great salty lime sodas as well. Great people, and possibly the best view in kk with one of the only areas you can see the boardwalk and sunset! Accommodated vegan and gluten free and papadum is gf as well 💫👌🙏🏽🌎

After reading positive good reviews we decided to visit this restaurant. We were not very impressed with our main courses of Chicken Rogan Josh and Chicken Curry. Whilst eating mine , I crunched into a piece of sharp bone and this always puts me clean off my meal. My wifes had several pieces of what I would call " grizzly chicken" basically not good quality. The staff were informed of this and just basically said it is what it is. We had onion bhaji to start with which was good, but we didnt get any pakora sauce or anything else, which after we asked for, it was given. Price was very good, but we will not go back as we prefer better quality food and service, oh and the only beer you could get was a bottle of Heineken, no Tiger or Kingfisher etc available.

Hi Gary. Thanks for your review and apologies that you were disappointed. We have taken note of your points , however our chicken is delivered to us daily and its fresh. We don't use frozen foods for anything. The chicken dishes you mentioned are boneless and should not have had a bone in it, so very sorry for this . However, you could have asked for it to be changed. Usually we do not have any special sauce that goes with the onion bhaji because here most folks enjoy it with our complimentary fresh mint sauce. Best regards, Mother India team.

I was at this restaurant for lunch and I had the Butter Chicken and the Naan Bread with Garlic. Both were so delicious that I went back a week later, after our tour, and ordered the same menu items again! The restaurant is extremely clean and the service impeccable! The first time I was there I had a pleasant chat with our server, who is also the restaurant manager. The second time I was there I chatted with one of the owners. The staff has been working at this restaurant for years and they presented a class act!

Excellent vegetarian food and gluten free! Confident to eat here and lots of choice. Delicious food too! We shared a paneer tikka achari to start and then shared aloo matter, dhal and pilau rice. Totally full. Great service and we’ll be back possibly several times next week. Thank you Mother India.
