A great vegetarian Indian restaurant. Nowhere near as bland as these places can often be. But don't go on a Saturday night as the local Indian band makes conversation impossible.
I tend to judge Indian restaurants on the quality of their paneer, and this had amongst the best paneer tikka masala I've ever had. My friend's biryani was more of a stirfried rice concoction, but was very pleasant. Everything was pretty fierily spiced - ask if you want it milder. Portion sizes were pretty huge - more than we could eat. Service was surprisingly slow given how massively overstaffed the place was - I gave up counting after the first 20 or so waiters, for a room with well under 200 seats.
Starters and main courses and beers for two was R$2100 (GB£20/US$30), not cheap but nevertheless good value.
It's not in the Diamond Plaza mall itself - it's located in a small strip mall beside s Shell garage nearby.
amazing paneer, good quality food
service slow, noisy music
