I visited the restaurant twice in the same week whilst I was on holiday. The first night was amazing, I am a Pescatarian, but decided to have the Paneer Butter Masala with Garlic rice and some papadoms. The meal was excellent, and although I couldn’t finish it I would definitely have it again and make more room in my stomach. The waiters were great and the restaurant Manager Lijo made sure I was well looked after. The second night was even more amazing. My waiter Sarath really looked after me well and I decided to have the Vegetable Biryani which was delicious, with quite a bit of heat but the raita helped cool it down. Once again the manager Lijo was very welcoming and ensured I was well looked after. Fantastic authentic Indian food, very flavoursome, with wonderful staff and lovely ambience. Well done to Lijo and his team. Hope to see you again on my next trip to Malta. View more
