The dishes are good and would suit every taste (mild to spicy) , the chef does a great job modifying it to your like. The view is great if you get the corner seat... More

My husband was able to select from less spicy dishes and found the waitering staff very helpful as they suggested and advised us on various dishes. The owner personally... More

I had a jalfresi and it was quite a good flavour, maybe the peppers could have been cooked longer,... More

My Husband and I came mid week for a meal which was unplanned. Although the restaurant was quite busy and we hadn't made a reservation, we were seated with ease. The staff made us feel really welcome from the outset. It has to be said that the decor of the restaurant is simply beautiful, if you are lucky enough to... More

I was here with my wife and two toddlers for my birthday tonight, and had an excellent time. We had a booth to ourselves, and the staff were excellent with both adults and children. The food was excellent all round and would highly recommend.
