We travel in Oct as group of 5, this small restaurant serves the best Indian Curry through the whole trip! We wait for almost an hour, really too long, but when we got our bite (chicken, lamb, beef), everyone felt amazing, meat is so tender,...More

The portions were minimal, all the food was undercooked. We ordered a lamb-curry, we got lamb cutlets in what appeared to be a yellow tastless slurry. Also the naans, a plain and a garlic-naan, were undercooked, greasy and tastless. During our whole stay, we were...More

This was well worth the stop. It was actually the best curry I’ve ever had. Big tender pieces of meat and the best naan bread around. Highly recommend.

We were glad to see an Indian restaurant in glacier, food was amazing specialty fish curry and cheese naan, samosas were equally delicious, very clean and tidy premises. Highly recommend

We had take away from here. It was pretty good, the vindaloo was much tastier than the butter chicken. However the meat was a bit scarce in the serves for the price. But not bad in a town with few choices.

Stopped in for early take-away and were suitably impressed. The food was spicy and fulsome. The lamb was a tad over cooked but the flavours impressed

The staff were rude and extremely unhelpful. We ordered one curry and a garlic naan, both were below average and an embarrassment to Indian cuisine. Over priced food for very small portion and the naan was soggy and undercooked.
