My boyfriend and I went there for a Valentine's day dinner as we both LOVE Indian food. This was our first time going to this restaurant and picked this place based on its reviews.

I ordered the Lamb Roganjos which consists of ginger, garlic, tomatoes, cloves and garum masala while my boyfriend ordered the Butter Chicken. The butter chicken consists of boneless chicken breast, cream an cooked in a tomato based curry. We also ordered garlic naan for the table as well as basmati rice. We found the portions were perfect and the blend of spices amazing! We both tried each other's orders of meat and both were super delicious.

The overall ambiance of the restaurant was really romantic. It was a perfect date night and the lighting and the decor added to the overall mood. Since it was Valentine's day they gave each of us a mini chocolate cupcake which had X and O icing. We thought it was really thoughtful and a great touch to the occasion. Would definitely go to this place again! :)

I have been here on a number of occasions and it has always been top notch. We invited friends to dinner to celebrate my husband's health recovery and we were excited because they had never been here before. My only complaint is that the service was slow on this Friday night. It took a long time before we got our drinks before dinner. It was also a long time before our meal was served, but the upside of this was that we had time to visit. The late drinks, however, is inexcusable :)

Hands down the best curry in Calgary with the friendliest staff. I love this place, but sad they've closed their Midnapore location.
