Best Indian I've ever had! The early bird special is a great deal... I believe it was served until 8 (maybe 7). Very nice Tandoori Chicken was extremely good and not at all dry. Atmosphere was cute and cozy.

We went there for the earlybird menus (from 16:00-19:30), and overall it was a pleasant dinner. One concern, the early bird course menus had 3 price ranges (from 12-16€ I believe) and we thought the starter/appetizer was included in the price, because their prices were not marked on the menu. It turned out that starter/appetizers and rice/nan were not included... More

We stopped in here for dinner on a Saturday night after searching the web for an Indian restaurant. Considering there are very few, this restaurant doesn't have loads of competition. Despite that, they are delivering tasty Indian food at incredible value. We had the early bird menu:12 euros each and included poppadums, starters, mains and rice/bread. It was also offered... More

Went here without a booking after favouring the early bird menu to others in the street! We were given a table with no cutlery or napkins and waited 5-10 minutes for a waiter to ask if we wanted drinks! Food was served very quickly and at an averaged standard! Felt rushed to eat it and noticed the waiters standing over... More

I have been coming here on and off for about15 years I think and I keep coming back. Other restaurants have come and gone but these guys have stood the test of time. Decor has not changed a lot and more importantly the food is still wonderful. Staff have always been very accommodating and friendly. If you want great Indian... More
