The mark of any great eatery is not just its food, but its consistency! My wife and I have eaten here more times than I can remember and it has never disappointed. The staff are friendly, relaxed and attentive. Seating can be a bit cramped but hey, they've got to pay the rent I guess! Some of the clientele are a bit "gap-year try-hard," but who cares? The food is amazing. The roti-rolls (go for the double, it's great value) are incredible. The rice bowls are great too - only available at lunchtime I think. Food is Persian / Kashmiri / Pakistani / Indian influenced. The meat is locally sourced and organic. Everything tastes fresh, authentically spicy, and prepared with love. I love the way the girls come round with little appetizers and samples of chai. They know what they're doing of course and you'll be addicted in no time! I almost feel tentative about recommending this place so strongly as it's already really busy every time I go there. But hey, if that isn't the mark of a special place, what is?
