Food was excellent, butter chicken was rich and the perfect proportion size. The rice was a large plate and could easily be shared between two people. Would definitely recommend and will be returning to this restaurant.

Always have great food, good prices and generous portions. Love the coconut rice and butter chicken. Staff are very friendly and helpful. My husband is a chef and it is his favourite place to eat, he grew up on curried food in England.

We enjoyed all of the food we ordered. We were a party of nine and glad to have made reservations ahead of time as the place had limited seating and is always busy.

The location of the restaurant is good. The service was decent. The food was poor to average in taste. Their paneer dish was tasteless. Rice was average. Did not enjoy. Will not return.

We had to wait 45 minutes to get in on a Saturday night, but it was worth it. The beef samosas were excellent- generously filled and crisp. The eggplant curry I shared with my husband was delicate and delicious. Service was slow, with too long of a wait between samosas and main dish. I don't know if we saw a... More

A good place if you like Indian food. Tasty and well cooked. Staff is friendly. Make sure you have a reservation during weekends and high season, quite a busy place.

This is a pretty good place to get some of your cravings for spicy yummy Indian food fulfilled. I love the veggie platter and the dal. The variety of naan is also pretty good. I really like the indo-chinese dishes they've got there. The dishes are full of flavors and that is what gets me back to this place. They... More

All the food was of very high quality: flavourful and prepared in an authentic way. The service was also excellent; extremely attentive and friendly, despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy.

The food was ok (nothing special) but the service was very slow. They couldn't control the rush and lot of customers had to wait a long time even for a take out. I had to wait almost 30 min more than the time specified, for me to pick up my food.
