    It was our first time; it a very casual sit down place. A bit of noodle bar vibe in Victoria. Food was decent 3.5/4 stars in terms of quantity and quality some of the stuff can improve. The garlic needs some more taste and basil on it for $5/a w its the most expensive garlic naan I have eaten anywhere. Malai kofta- the actual rolls or koftas are very mediocre and nothing lime the actual thing. The curry was perfect. I am sure they will improve with time, but for Victoria its good enough.

    The restaurant accepted our reservation on Monday despite the fact that it was closed. We arrived on time to darkness. Ruined our evening. So no we had a poor experience- both with the app and the restaurant.

    Food was delicious. Some staff were working very hard, others standing around. Waited a long time to order and get drinks (like 15-20 minutes). They were apologetic, but it wasn't that busy. I think they were distracted by take-out orders, which was frustrating as someone sitting there feeling ignored.

    The food was some of the best Indian I've had but the service was super slow even to give us water initially or bring our drink order. We sat there thirsty and wondering what was going on. I believe they probably had a lot of skip the dishes orders going on and were maybe short staffed. Once we ordered the food it came quickly. I would definitely go back when I have more time to spend waiting.

    The food was served in large portions meant for sharing. We over ordered so we had a lot leftover. The quality of the food was pretty good. The restaurant itself is more of a fast food place than a fine dining restaurant. The service was very friendly and got the job done.

    A cosy, family-run restaurant, with a casual atmosphere and excellent food. The menu was quite extensive for a small place, offering an interesting mix of Indian and Western foods, with some fusion elements like the Bollywood Burger. Staff were attentive and helpful, if not speedy. Food was delicious and portions were generous. Music was too loud for my taste.

    Very extensive menu that includes a selection of burgers and fries! The variety of dishes can overwhelm so you'll need advice if you are not familiar with this cuisine. Absolutely must try for East Indian food in Victoria.

    Loved the butter chicken and the fries. This might be my Indian food go-to place. Just only one thing that might be an improvement. The music was loud and I barely could hear my friends or the waitress.

    We had the Palak Paneer, Butter Chicken, and Garlic Naan. Everything was served piping hot, and was very very good. The server was attentive but not pushy at all and was very friendly. As is the norm right now with dining outside downtown, there was noise and it was a bit chilly but this is obviously nothing to do with the restaurant. We will definitely order again!

    it could gain with a more intimate environment or decoration, with dimmed lights, etc. Not to make it more romantic, but to make it more Indian.

    My burger and salad were excellent. My wife's dish was a little spicier than she expected for butter chicken. The waitress was very good but overworked. She handled the whole restaurant on her own when she should have had more support. The wait for the food was longer than expected.

    My wife and I went to Varsha for a date night and shared the Chef's Platter. It was excellent, with three different curries, two types of Naan, and a mixed vegetable rice. Highly recommend this menu item, there was more than enough food for the two of us.

    3 of 6 dishes we ordered were not good at all. Avoid chicken tandoori (it is not even close to what tandoori should be like), the pakoras (they were burnt) and the broccoli (served like a huge head of broccoli that we had to ask for a serrated knife to make bite size).
