We arrived as a table of 20 people. Usually in other restaurants its a fuss to seat 20 people and all be served at the same time. We were delighted to get a window table then we were all served with free poppadoms and dips. After our food order was taken we were all served our food at the same... More

My husband (on the recommendation of the waitress) had lamb makhani and it was outstanding - soft lean lamb in a creamy tomatoey mildly spiced... More

Having planned to dine elsewhere, we ended up here instead! (There was a 1 hour wait elsewhere!) and what a gem to stumble on - excellent food and friendly service! Thoroughly enjoyed by both my husband and myself. Will certainly recommend to our friends and family.
