What we accept as Indian/Deshi food in greater Sacramento,California region is put to shame by this wonderful Deshi restaurant with the most friendly staff and owners. The lamb and prawn dishes are worth every penny and more. The staff was so caring that it melts...More

Tiki Masala and Garlic Naan were delicious. Chicken Saag Balti had great flavor but needed more chicken. Dessert was frozen and unimpressive. Great service. Great experience. Great drinks.

Thank you for your excellent food and service! We had amazing peshwari naan. And we loved the chicken haliwari. The service was excellent. I’d skip dessert but other than that pretty awesome!

Very nice hospitality, and a variety of veggie options on the thali dish. And bring your own booze which was fab!

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
