We visited the restaurant twice during our stay in Banff.

First time for à la carte dinner where we didn't realize that 15% gratuity was included in our bill. We paid like we always do and added 15% on top of our bill (30% gratuity). We planned second visit as the food was good and servers were attentive.

Second time, we noticed the same when we went for a lunch buffet and highlighted the same to the concerned person, even though it was fixed for us, we would appreciate if it was explicitly mentioned in the menu. Normally, gratuity is automatically added only when there is group of 6 or more but we were just two.

We did feel that the restaurant is trying to take advantage of guests and also we did find out some similar reviews earlier and no action had been taken till now.


Won't visit again or suggest to friends!!

They took an hour to get the food. When the food came it was all turmeric. It is the worst indian restaurant I have eaten in the US and Canada.

The decor is basic and it was stuffy.

Don't go within a mile of it

I frequent Asian restaurants and this was the best Tandoori, and the condiments were excellent too. My guest and I were also impressed with the Aloo Gobi and authentic naan.

The restaurant was comfortably dark and a great retreat from the city streets, while in contrast, the owner was a happy caring person and the staff prompt and helpful. I was treated to their lunch buffet with my son and I found the food to be clean and flavourful. The only point lacking was the absence of truly hot and spicy dishes.

Although a safe selection of dishes, I would gladly return.
