Everything is perfect. Nothing to complain about my experience. I’m very satisfied with the food, service & place. Most importantly, my family enjoyed our lunch there. We’ll definitely come again.

The place is very accessible (about 2 min walk from Little India) and provided a comfortable dining experience. The staff were also very friendly, and very quick to give recommendations to suit the palates of the guests I had with me! We had the palak paneer, butter chicken, assorted bread platter, tandoori chicken and our group enjoyed all of the dishes. Thank you so much!

Service was not the best . I was going to be late and called the restaurant. The person who answered did not even greet us properly. When we reach, table was not even wiped properly. So I wiped it myself. Was only given one menu for three people. Seriously ? Wanted this meal to be a special one cuz it was my dad's birthday. The food tho was pretty good. Just- the tom yam soup. OMG , seriously did the kitchen staff put one whole pack of salt in there. Me and Dad only had like one sip each! Disgusting. The drinks were pretty bad too. When we were leaving, again no customer service. My god. Food was good. The service tho - atrocious. Would come here again but probably not for some special meals

We only had the fish head curry as we bought this on a Groupon. The curry was great. The fish and vegetables was fresh, and the curry was fragrant, tangy and not overly spicy. The service was prompt and friendly too. We spotted loads of other dishes on the menu that we would love to try so we'll definitely be back again.

Food was average. Had mutton and chicken briyani. Rice not fragrant. Naan could have been better. Masala tea was above average. Drinks took time to arrive, one man show and probably was overloaded with orders during Friday night. Pls change out the menu, its torn at the bottom, looked bad. They put pesticide balls at wash basin, looks unsightly.
