Authentic West Asian cuisine. Good value lunch. Cosy exotic atmosphere. Nice people.


A valuable restaurant where you can enjoy authentic Silk Road cuisine. It used to be near Kobe Daimaru, but it moved a long time ago.
When it comes to curry, mutton is the most spicy, followed by chicken, shrimp, and vegetables. The shrimp and vegetable curry tastes like a mix of the sweetness and spiciness of the ingredients. Samosas have vegetables and meat, and both curry and samosas are delicious.
However, the best part is the ice cream dessert. It's chocolate ice cream and milk ice cream, but it has a little bit of spices such as cardamom, making it a bit different from other ice creams and very delicious. The lunch set (approximately 2,200 yen) is definitely a good deal, so be sure to give it a try.


I had the shrimp curry when I first came here many years ago. At that moment, I thought I was eating the most delicious thing I've ever eaten in my life. Even now, I sometimes think about it and go there for lunch.

This salad is a fun and addictive combination of the refreshing taste of the marinated tomatoes and the slightly sweet taste of the eggplant.

There are two types of samosas: those with potatoes and those with quinoa and various vegetable-like fillings.

And shrimp curry! As always, the deliciousness is deep and deep. It came out warm so it wouldn't get cold. I feel like eating the curry with the carrot garnish mixed into the rice makes it even more delicious.

We ended the meal with chai topped with rock sugar and thank you for the meal. I'll visit you again.
