This place is terrible, food is stale, unhealthy food and very bad service from staff, would avoid at all cost. This restaurant needs to close immediately before someone died from the stale food.

I have been to this restaurant twice. The quality of service and the food both has been below average. I ordered a Mutton Biryani which happened to be stale and only microwaved to serve hot. Ordered coke - got flat drinks. Unfortunately in a city...like Kinshasa, restaurant business is not very well regulated. I think the problem with New Relais is that the restaurant is not doing business and they are probably under cash pressure to have fresh food stock all the time. I would not recommend this restaurant. This is not the service you expect when you're paying that price.More

Been there on 27th January 2017. We had some job at Zambian Embassy. It was our lunch time and looking for some place to find known foods. Its just beside the main road and opposite of BDBC building. The exterior was rather savvy while the...interior was fine. The wash room didnt have water on the basin but it was clean and neat. We ordered Chicken Biriyani. It was good. But the price seemed a bit hight though. Food was tasty and well cooked. We enjoyed the stay at the restaurants. Air cooler was a bit "less" working. But on the request, the waiter adjusted the temperature. I recommend it if you want to taste a good Bangla - Indian food in Kinshasa.More

When our driver first took us there, I was hesitant because the exterior looked rather, well, lousy. I'm glad my colleague forced me in, cause the interior was quite charming and well maintained. The food was great! We had Indian and a little Chinese, and...both came out well made and tasty. The beers were chilled and the staff were warm.More

Good food-- pizzas and Indian dishes are really tasty and well priced for Kinshasa, but the restaurant is dark and gloomy. Service not bad.

The Indian food here is quite good. We ate here several times while we were in Kinshasa. Not as expensive as many of the other restaurants in the area. Try the lime drink, it's quite good!
