The staff is attentive and friendly, the music is nice and relaxing, it's not crowded, located near the hotel, but especially the FOOD! Everything I've had was good.

Simple place, the employees were really nice and attentive. The food was really good. Excellent manga sauce. Not very expensive but not cheap either.

My wife and I went for a meal on Monday 19th may 2014. The restaurant was clean and well decorated inside.our meal was served quickly (within 10 minutes) free popadoms followed by onion bhajis,followed by our main meal. The meal itself was excellent quality and there was plenty of it. I would use this restaurant again.

Good place to have an Indian meal. Outside seating could do with an upgrade but inside looked lovely. Food very good and plentiful. I will return. Service & staff very good.
