“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

The food I found to be excellent and fresh. The cost is negligible compared to "the West". The restaurant is clean and there is a sink to wash your hands with soap and running water.

“Be careful. These guys will cheat you (they will not, if you are a muslim)....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is a muslim Biriyani take away place patronized mainly by the muslim community. The food is known to be tasty. But it is also known that this establishment gives step-motherly treatment to customers of other communities by serving them with food of lesser quality. For example, better portions of the chicken is served only for the people of their own community. Yesterday I bought a chicken biriyani, only to realize after going home that there was NO PIECE OF CHICKEN, only the rice in the packet. It was too far for me to go back and complain.

“GREAT TANDOORI CHICKEN & NAAN!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is essentially a fast food restaurant whose premises was expanded and refurbished several months ago. Their tandoor chef is a Pakistani while the servers are Sri Lankan. The biryani here is nothing worth the mention and so are their curries. The products of their tandoor oven are delicious. The chicken leg quarter tandoori and the kebabs are lovely while the naan complements it. The premises is air-conditioned but the dine-in is probably not for everyone. Their takeaways business is brisk and busy.

This restaurant is adjacent to a big Cargills Food City supermarket. You could order your food here and shop at the supermarket while it is made. I would order upfront if you were in a rush. Tandoor items take a while.
