Good local restaurant with good quality Indian meals. Tandoori chicken is one that you can share. There’s also parking available on the street.

This restaurant has a great menu and the food is very tasty at a reasonable price. Decor is nothing to write home about, but who cares when the restaurant is quiet and peaceful and very enjoyable to dine in.
