I enjoyed the Navratan korma and kashmiri naan very much, my other half less impressed with noodles. Large courtyard with trees and fairy lights made it a lovely place to sit and enjoy the entertainment. There was local music, dancing singing and puppetry to watch. Great value.

One of the worst restaurants to eat at. The food was horrible. We had ordered Chinese cuisine, which from no angle was worth eating. The serving staff was arrogant. Pathetic experience, would suggest to avoid.
