“Great Restaurant, Poor Location, light on spice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This restaurant is located in a car park at the back of Low Fell- difficult to find but worth it. The food is excellent ( its has very low heat , so you might want to pick a hotter one than you would do if you are from Glasgow) suggest you have the paneer sag and tarka dall- veggy i know but mouth watering- beware they do like garlic so dont go the day before a job interview. Tends to be very quiet so atmosphere maybe lacking if you want crowds- if you like good food give Monsoon a try
