This restaurant offers tasty meals with reasonable prices, including free wet tissues and desserts after the main meal. Plus, staffs are very friendly and supportive. Location is near city center. Highly recommended 👍🏻👏🏻

The food is excellent, more than this, the menu describes what each dish corresponds to. As Indian food is rich and varied it is great to have a better understanding of what you are eating. Especially when the taste and species melt in your mouth! They waiter was nice and patient with us too

If you are looking arround for some Indian food, this is a cute small restaurant. The taste was ok, we ordered a few dishes. Chicken Biryani, Dhal, Butter chicken, Aloo gobi, we liked all the dishes. The tandoori chicken, tasted a bit different, but it wasn't really an issue. Overall we enjoyed our meal here!

1 of the few Indian restaurants that I recommended to try for either local or visitors. It’s on Bui Vien, 1 of the most lively & well-known street, but the restaurant is quite small though. The food is amazing; from the taste, the look with different colors that represent Indian cuisine. The price is quite fair for a meal, but the menu is full of diversity of Indian food (it’s a lot to choose from, so plan ahead). The staffs are friendly & helpful with recommendations too! It’s mostly gonna be full around night, so I suggest using your meal at here a bit earlier than usual for more seat choices :D

Came in the afternoon around 5pm on a Sunday. Really nice special mutton biryani, excellent portion sizes, nice meat off the bone, was very well hydrated by the staff they always topped up my water. Good seasoning and good flavours. Would recommend. Food could be a bit spicer for my taste but it was still very good

After walking around looking for a place to eat, my colleagues and I stumbled across this Indian restaurant. The food was so very delicious, and the service was wonderful. I loved the tanarind sauce that came out in the beginning. The mixed fruit lassi was the best. 10/10 would recommend.

Can't fault it. We enjoy our Indian food and this was as good as any we've eaten. Friendly staff. Great service, and an enjoyable experience. The chutney that came with our appetiser was to die for! The Lamb was cooked to perfection. Recommended.

Food was delicious and very filling. The staff were so attentive and made sure your glass of water was always filled and that the food was to your liking. Had the best time and would definitely recommend when you are in Ho Chi Minh City :)

Chicken Tikka was very tasty as was the garlic bread. Waiting staff are excellent, unfortunately the atmosphere was spoiled a little because of people ( staff member also) watching videos and making calls on their phones with the speakers on. Hopefully a one off experience with these ignorant clowns.

The best Indian food I have had while travelling Asia! The tikka masala, butter chicken, and garlic naan were all fantastic. The service was great and they made sure our water cups were never empty and gave us some free fruit and pudding for desert. Highly recommend, thank you!

Mango lassi was made by a real mango and so was very fresh, we got free watermelon fruit after the meal as a service 👏🏻 the food quality and quantity was all very good 👍🏻 we can visit again next time as there are not many Indian restaurants in Vietnam 😊

Excellent food and great service. I had a South Indian thali which was very good and gave authentic feels for me. I greatly appreciated the surprise watermelon at the end. Totally recommend trying this restaurant for anyone who would want to try authentic Indian food. Way to go team.

Oh, my gosh!!! The food here is so good!!! And, the staff is so thorough! My cup was never empty! We were completely blown away!!! We got Mutton Biriyani, Tandoori Mutton, and Butter Chicken to share between the three of us. As well as, Cheese Naan, and Paneer Chili to start. You're also given rice pudding and fresh watermelon at the end to cleanse your palate. There was so much food that we didn't finish it but I wish I could have taken it with me!

After sitting down, I got a cup of cold water, some chutneys (condiments), and papadam which were complementary. This was appreciated as I waited for my order to arrive. I ordered malai kofta and plain basmati rice. The malai kofta was quite tasty. I asked if it could be made more spicy and he sent the dish back to the kitchen. When the malai kofta was returned to the table, I noticed that the dish was filled up again, which was a nice surprise. The waiter constantly refilled my cup with cold water and he was attentive. The table service was really good and the man standing outside in front of the restaurant seemed nice as well. All in all, a good dining experience.

Absolutely five stars. No hesitation!! We had both northern and southern Thali. Every single dish (a total of about twelve separate items) was delectable. Slickness was as requested and the careful and caring attention of our servers was greatly appreciated. The breads and rice were also excellent and the environment that has been created is comfortable and attractive. Let me not forget the delicious mango lassis. Perfect balance and texture. Highly recommended!

As a lover of Indian cuisine, I recently had dinner at an Indian restaurant in District 1. I started my meal with the butter chicken curry, and it was nothing short of amazing. The curry was rich, flavorful, and had that distinct aroma that sets authentic Indian cuisine apart. Pairing it with warm, fluffy naan bread. Next up was the samosa, and it exceeded my expectations. The crispy exterior gave way to a succulent chicken filling bursting with flavors. The spices used were robust, adding depth to every bite. However, the highlight of my meal was undoubtedly the mango lassi. It wasn't overly sweet, allowing the natural tanginess of the mango to shine through. The restaurant also offered complimentary desserts—sweet soup and juicy watermelon. The chè, although unfamiliar to me, was a delightful surprise. Made with rice and milk, it had a creamy texture, but it was a bit sweet to me. In terms of pricing, I found the restaurant to be reasonable, considering its prime location in Quận 1. The portions were generous, and the quality of the ingredients justified the cost. Moreover, the staff were incredibly warm and attentive.

I was here for the dinner and the food and service was fantastic! The quality of ingredients were fresh, great and the dishes with full of flavour. The staff were friendly and made sure you get a good Indian food. The menu has variety of options for both vegetarian and non vegetarian and the dishes are well explained if you are new to the cuisine.

We visit them and since it was our third day in Saigon we were looking for good Paranthas and Alu Puri. In the meantime they offered us papads which were good and on the house. The paranthas came along with curd the taste was different. Like it had masala filling of Dosa! And I actually liked it. Second were the Alu Puri which had 2 big puri and Bhaji or sabji. The Alu Puri was even better. We also got, tea and it was the best we had in Ho Chi Minh City. Why? it was like we make in India. No ready made masala that you mix in water and call it a day. They also gave us Kheer which was really good. Along with Watermelon that we takeaway as we generally don’t eat anything after having tea. Our overall food and experience was good. And we recommend this place if you are craving for Indian food.

This food is delicious- true authentic Indian & Sri Lankan cuisine. We ended our trip in this restaurant (Ho Chi Minh City) and we are delighted we came. All the reviews are true. Every mouthful was perfect. The complimentary rice pudding (kheer) & fruit was very kind. Delightful kheer by the way. The staff are so attentive and welcoming. 100% 5 stars 🌟 Every star is deserved here.

Best Indian food in Saigon!!! We come from Montreal Canada and love Indian food. This place was everything we asked for! Very friendly staff and the bottle of wine is not expensive at all (my wife needs wine with her dinner). I would recommand 100%

Great Indian restaurant serving a variety of tastes and catering for all different types of dietary requirements. One of us has celiac and they cooperated very well with gluten-free food items. All food was tasty and there was quick service. Along with good food, the restaurant served a great ambience as well with songs playing of different languages. At the end of our meal we were delighted to find out that they gave kids complimentary ice creams with waffle cone bowls and everyone else a serving of the famous Keralian dessert paysum. Overall, it was amazing service and a great meal. The great service made us go there multiple times for our stay at Ho Chi Minh. We strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying at Ho Chi Minh or Hoi An (their second branch)!
