Good indian food

Went here 1st night in Monte Gordo. Got off to a bad start with samosa, pastry very hard, cooked for too long. Main courses however were lovely - vegetable curry and chicken tikka masala. Service was great too. Would definitely eat there again.

We ate here tonight for the first time and we couldn't ask for more. Our waiter Taj was extremely attentive getting to know each of our names and chatted like we were old friends. The food was excellent and we will definitely be dining here again

It seems ironic that just last year I gave this place 5 star rating and now I'm giving it a 1... What the hell happened in this last year? I don't know if the cook they lost the chef or if the owners changed, but this place went down hill. The food took a lot of time to arrive even... More

Hence the fact we visited 3 times during... More
