“Excellent food and ambiance. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Very accommodating and professional waitstaff. Very good wine list. The owner ordered appetizers for us and selected some delicious options. I had the nalli vindaloo... Spicy but still able to appreciate the flavors... The lamb was SO tender. I would definitely go again..

“Bad Service Experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Heard about this restaurant from friends, got a chance to visit on 6/4/13 evening. I was given a table promptly. Waiting for someone to show up to take order. Waiter showed up with water after 10 mins or so, did not say a word, no hello, no smile, nothing. Poured the water into the glass and left. Ok, started to sip the water and waited for someone to take order. No one shows up to take order, not even drinks. Left the restaurant after 25 mins or so.

“A real indian treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

I love Indian food and am always happy when I find a good Indian restaurant. It was cold outside and immediately welcoming and warm inside. I was abit overwhelmed by the size of the interior once inside, but I needn't have worried. The food and the service were excellent. Only comments was the doors in the ladies toilets were so stiff that I thought they were all locked and had to get staff to check and some of the tables were really close together. But food wise - delicious.
