Good service from the waitress, very friendly. Food was ok too although i thought they were a bit stingy with the keema naan (quite empty). Plenty of rice available though. This is a no alcohol restaurant but alcohol is not far away as there is...More

university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighborhood that supports a long string of
