Critic's review

Diane de Beer

It is about the full package, the quirkiness of the venue which is part of the premises of a garage, the largesse of a typical Indian menu which runs the full gamut, the helpfulness of the staff and the way you approach the meal. It’s better to dine in a large party and order an array of dishes from the menu which can be charged with old time favourites and new possibilities with each visit. Their Indian breads are special and varied with a large selection including parathas, rotis and naans which should all be tasted. Then the choice can become more personal but include items from their biryanis, vegetarian fare, a fish dish or two with mutton as well as chicken – and dip into their curries.

Liquor isn’t an option, but sample their lassis, salty or sweet to complement the meal.

If you’re new to Indian food, the staff is there to guide as well as serve. You have to make the visit your own. Get involved.

The restaurant is set in a cavernous space with a TV or two, usually screening cricket and then the diners, the numbers which vary in size. You could walk into a wedding party or be the only diners on the day. It’s up to you to get into the mood, to embrace the generosity of the food and to buy into the frivolity of the occasion. There’s ample safe parking in front of the restaurant in the street.

Take a food trip around Laudium while you’re at it and purchase some sweet treats to conclude your meal.
