Went her for a meal after 2 disasters in other places, no need to worry the food and service were to notch. The staff were excellent and food was served reasonably quickly. I would strongly recommend this restaurant if you like a good meal

Food is very yummy but service is a little slow. Dessert options are very limited. It is located not too far from any major hotels or the little CBD

We had dinner here on 13/07 and it was really lovely. I had a fish curry and he had the t-bone with nsima and cabbage. The food was well cooked and very tasty. Our server Tabo was very attentive despite the restaurant being very busy....Well recommended.More

When I walk into any Indian restaurant I think one thing to myself - ‘is this food worth the burning ache of my sphincter in 3 hours’. The answer is yes. With all my might I say yes. The only people who do not enjoy...this restaurant are the central Zambian plumbing company and that is very much their problem. I would sell my soul and probably more likely my body to experience their korma for the first times. I worry for my first born child that I will never love and appreciate them the way I do the butter chicken. My soul will return to Ireland but my heart will remain here at the 2nd table to the right on the balcony of the golden leaf. Also let u smoke cigs.More

We had heard great things about this Indian restaurant. My husband was underwhelmed and my daughter isn’t a fan of spicy food but our son and I thought it was quite good. If you get the garlic chili naan, be prepared for those chilis! I...ordered the butter chicken and thought it was very good. Portions are pretty big. They don’t have a website but if you go to their Facebook page you will find their WhatsApp number. It was easy to make reservations directly via WhatsApp. When we arrived the place was full and busy so we were glad that we had reservations.More

Amazing naan bread and authentic Indian food. The hot is very hot so I would recommend medium spice for your meal.

Absolutely fabulous Authentic Indian restaurant in Livingstone. This was a return visit after 3 years and a must if in Livingstone. Sitting on the Patios on a warm May evening enjoying great food was the perfect last evening of our 2 week holiday.

Fantastic food, great service, good price!! We loved this Indian restaurant, everything we ordered was fantastic. Considering there is such little choice for nice food in livingstone (main street), I would definitely rush here and would go back often!!
