we came to this restaurant because our favourite one was closed. The starters were fine, that was the only good thing. The main courses were chicken biryani which was quite tasteless, my husband was expecting a thin omelette on the top but got a boiled egg stuck in the middle of it, a chicken tikka masala was next which was...

Out of all of the Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants along Ocean Road, I find this to be a constant perform of great food and wonderful service. We do try other restaurants, but always find that we always have just that little bit better experience here, in both food and atmosphere. We usually opt for the mid range special menu for... More

Food was tasty and well presented. Good selection of chutneys (not sure about the tomato ketchup type dip) with poppadums and a nicely spiced Lamb Naga. Topped of with a Cobra and... More

However, last night we were charged off the a la carte menu not the specials menu (fixed price). We had specifically stated when ordering we wanted the special menu.

Very tasty food at a good price. Friendly service and watched a staff picked up accidental dropped cutlery/toys thrown by children. Waited a little too long for dessert but would still go back.
