Nestled just behind the Novatel on Hamdan Street, this is one of the city's gems of cheap Indian eats. They have a wide selection of veg and non-veg dishes ranging from mild to nuclear meltdown, and can custom-spice most of their dishes to your preference.
The ambiance of the place is nothing short of ghastly (the paint is orange), but it's a great spot to drop in after a night out on the town. The upstairs area is for bachelors, so I'd recommend the basement 'family' area where re-runs of Indian Idol and Bollywood films play on the big-screen in the background. Service is efficient and friendly, although you may have to go through one or two waiters to get someone who can clearly explain what the contents of the different dishes are and/or make good recommendations.
Most main course meat dishes hover around 20 Dhs and veg dishes around 15 Dhs. Delivery is free (usually 30 mins), PHONE 02-6720685. Note: They get insanely busy after 8 pm, so order beforehand for delivery.
Recommended dishes for the newbie: buttered chicken (or the veg alternative paneer makhanwala, both on the mild side), with their tandoori paneer (dry) to accompany. Naan NOT rice! ;-)
