This little restaurant tucked away by a corner of the Ibn Battuta Mall boardwalk area is often overlooked, which is a real shame because it serves up curries and kebabs with a difference. Granted, the ambience leaves a lot to be desired but you can see they really tried from beautiful wooden furniture and cabana-style booths outside to quirky kebab serving trays (it’s like they’re on a mini table).

The menu that might seem small, but offers enough variety. The chef’s recommendations are well worth a try; often with a slight flavour twist to what you’d expect. For example, the seekh e tandoor is a common enough dish and tastes fairly the same anywhere you go, but here the minced lamb kebab includes a different blend of spices - it’s just subtle enough for you to notice a difference, no doubt complemented by the fact that the meat is fresh and marinated in it well. And, unlike a lot of Indian restaurants in town, when you ask for things hot that’s exactly what you’ll get. Head here for a post-cinema curry; you won’t regret it. Tandoori

    The air conditioning was not working when we visited in the height of summer at night for dinner and to add to it they have a tandoor right inside the restaurant. All the air conditioners were dripping stale foul smelling water on the tables serving food. Food was very mediocre. Would never recommend anyone to ever visit this restaurant.
