Not as spectacular as Take That, but pretty d*mn good.

Visited here for a bite at this long-established yet fresh-feeling restaurant, before the gig at the Genting arena after Googling restaurants nearby. Glad this was the easiest one to get to. Super place with lovely food, immaculate service, calm ambience with 'proper' starched table linen, with... read more

According to the glowing reviews seen here we were in for a treat - didn't happen. Granted pleasant and attentive service but the food was decidedly average. Colleague had a biryani and I had a lamb saag type dish which had little depth of taste. The special naan was a lot smaller than the regular naan but with cheese on... More

Food was excellent, staff helpful and... More

Varied menu. Food is nicely spiced but was disappointed as the meat didn't seem very fresh. Excellent service & very well priced. Would visit again but would order vegetable dishes as opposed to meat dishes. Unless they improved the quality of meat used, of course.

We booked our work team meeting here on the basis of previous trip advisor comments. Sadly my curry had to go back it was very bland (garlic chilli chicken). Fair play though they handled the situation well and replaced my curry quickly with no drama, this was better but did not blow me away. The rest of the team had... More

Visited as recommended by nearby hotel staff. They were right to recommend. The food was exceptional and the staff extremely friendly and efficient. The manager very kindly offered us the upstairs function room for our second visit in two nights, as we booked for over thirty of us! We'd done the reconnoiter on the Friday and Saturday we went back... More
