Can thoroughly recommend this Indian restaurant. Good, authentic Indian food. Wide choice on the menu. Service very quick and efficient. Drinks reasonably priced. Good atmosphere and they will pack up your left overs, from the very generous portions, for another day.

Great place for a large group. Dishes are great for sharing. Waitstaff was helpful in choosing dishes. There is something for everyone- whether you love or just tolerate Indian food. Curry was fantastic.
