Well placed in the West End student quarter close to the Hunterian Museum and the Kelvinhall Museum, this was a magical find. Mid afternoon on a quiet Monday and still packed out. This did not prevent excellent, friendly and helpful service and speedy delivery of one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Tapas options permitted us to eat a... More

We went in on a Monday afternoon and within 5 minutes were in heaven. From the spicy onions to the Butter Chicken, everything is wonderful. Great food, no wonder you have to queue occasionally to get in. Cannot wait to go back

Had a meal here on Friday before our trip to Gigha. Superb. The lamb pilaf and the punjab spiced haddock were real stand outs. Lovely people and a cracking meal

We visited here with friends, that my husband hadn't seen for 30 years. The other couple were regulars and told us how fantastic the food was here, with Indian food served to a Tapas style. The Cafe was very busy which is a good sign, I order predominantly fishy dishes whilst my husband ordered predominantly lamb dishes. The other couple... More

We love Indian food and have eaten it for years. This was one of the best food experiences we have ever had. The service was average, not exceptional, but the quality of the food made up for it.

We had been to this restaurant's sister place along the road a few weeks ago and it didn't impress. But decided to take a run into this one to see what it was like. What a difference. The food came as Tapas. And there was a great choice for Vegetarians, and was aimed I think mainly at people just dropping... More

We queued up to get in for about 20 minutes then it as another 20 minutes before a drinks order was taken. Food order was made a while after that. The dishes came in fits and starts, main dishes coming without the rice which had been ordered - rice following after reminders to staff but the main dishes were either... More
