Being close to Hilton Grosvenor where we were put up we chose to have dinner here. The service was decent and everything ordered was served hot & fresh.

On the first evening I tried the meat thali; on the second visit I ordered the vegetable pakora entree and the vegetarian thali. On both evenings I enjoyed... More

Our second visit after Rugby at Murryfield, a little wait but well worth it. Tables crammed together so not for romancing situation, but lovely friendly atmosphere, staff ever helpful, menu explained and suggestions made. Food meaty and spicy, try the four meat samples, vegetarian options multiple lovely and fresh, not some re cooked korma. Will be back next game, give... More
