My friend had lamb okra and cleaned his plate. I had the butter chicken, which was excellent. We shared a chilli cheese naan, which... More

The food here is absolutely perfect. Choose the mix grill and you wont regret it! The only thing that would improve it for me is the clientel are a bit scruffy but that is the area of the city. Dont let it put you off. The food is excellent
