Situated a short walk from the Sky Park at the end of Suseong Lake is this hidden gem.
The smell will be the first thing to hit you as you arrive in this restaurant. Saffron, cumin and cinnamon fill the air and will make your tummy rumble. Next thing you will notice is the beautiful décor. Each foot of this place has been considered. The Indian art on the walls, the fountain with floating candles and flowers strewn upon it as well as the antique Indian shutters in the garden area all add up to create a real atmosphere and help create the feeling you have been transported to India itself.
If you have lived in Daegu for a while you may have noticed that Indian restaurants are few and far between compared to many other restaurants so its always a delight to find such a spot.
The polite staff will seat you and take your order. The extensive menu will have all of your favourites as well as a few others. The edition of lamb meat will make many westerners excited. The peshwari nann bread is particularly popular.
If there is something you fancy that isn’t on the menu you can always ask the waiter if the chef would be willing to attempt your request.
The large drinks menu has many delicious editions you’d expect in an Indian restaurant such as mango lassi’s and tiger beer.
This restaurant is more expensive than other restaurants in Daegu but you are getting food that’s quite hard to find. I’d save this place for a special occasion or if you really fancy some Tikka Masala.
The food is filling, satisfying and something a little different.
