This is when he informed me that the dishes on the menu didn't contain the Indian spices I was accustomed to. My dish came out "spicey"... More

Thank you for your review and I am sorry that it was an unpleasant experience for you. However as the waitress working at the restaurant on the night, I have to say that the version of events presented are inaccurate to what actually happened. At 11.10, I greeted two women into the restaurant, I immediately informed them that we finish... More

It was ok but the Pilau Rice was so so, it is not the best cuisine I ever tasted in an indian restaurant. We ordered a St Emilion, french wine, unfortunately they were either out of stock or...

I live in the U.K and have visited many restaurants of Indian cuisine, this remains the best I have had! The food is so more-ish, the staff are very polite and the whole ambient of the restaurant is so classy and relaxing! Will get a flight out to Cork just to eat here!
