Most well-rounded experience: great-value lunch buffet, excellent dinner & desserts but can be a bit pricey. Not the best location, however there are always friendly faces there.

This restaurant is superb.. if you are vegetarian, they have so many items to offer with Indian test.. If you are Gujarati, then also, they have some items to offer like Fulka Roti, Khichdi, kadhi etc. They will not stick to menu... Ready to offer...options.. Mr. Vijay is a person who look after each and every customer personally. My first choice.More

So, if you're going just for the food, chances are you will really like the place. The food was actually a whole lot better than I'd expected. I ate the chicken tikka masala (not sure that's what it was called - but the chicken tikka...with the gravy) and had it with naan. The garlic naan had no garlic on it, but, was quite tasty otherwise, and the overall quality of the meal was exceptional. Drinks are nice and again, the wifi was excellent. So, sitting solo, I was able to keep myself entertained. The service not spectacular, the smoking section is right up front in the place, so, even if you're a non smoker, you have to walk through that to get to the non smoking section. And the two sections aren't divided well, so you may end up smelling smoke throughout your meal. Lots of indians that come by, so, if you're missing Hindi/urdu or english speakers, you will see them here. Not sure you'll get to talk to them, but you'll see them for sure.More

Meal was good but we had to wait for long time for food. After repeated instances of waiting we had to shift our food venue to other place.

Excellent Indian authentic food. Real Indian taste. Try buffet. Waiters do not know hindi, they are local. Pre-booking is required for large group.

Was staying nearby and stumbled across this gem. Superb a la carter food. The lunchtime buffet was ok when stocked but looked like it had been ram raided at one point. Otherwise top notch.

The menu is very varied and I challenge anybody to find something unsuitable for them. (good vegetarian selection). The Indian food is different and not so good as many Indian restaurants in the UK but is good for a dinner whilst staying in Bishkek. Prices...are very reasonable and I have always ( on my frequent visits) found the staff to be helpful and cheerful.More

I enjoy a good Indian meal and this was just near our hotel. I had butter chicken that was tough and tasteless. My wife had a chick pea dish that was tasty, however, she spent the next 36 hours in the toilet with the consequence...of food poisoning. Please avoid if you are travelling as the risk is too great.More

This place was just in front of hotel Hyatt, i tried their different veg and non-veg dishes. I liked their veg items compared to non-veg except kebabs. This place seems to be most sought among locals too. Good service and good food but not the...biryani. nice collection of wines too but little expensive place.More
