Small Indian restaurant which serves tapas. Big menu selection. Especially liked the lamb dishes. Meat very tender and lean. Nice atmosphere, get busy which added to the bustle of the place. Nan breads excellent. Prices very reasonable.

The ambiance was decent. The food was fine too. Can be better in taste. Service can be improved as the time taken was quite not optimized. But the location of the restaurant is pretty convenient. Good place to go out with family.

We had an evening meeting in the new room downstairs. It seated 5 of us comfortably with room for a couple more. Service was excellent, as was the food. It was at times a little chilly but we were the only people on that level...More
