If you want to enjoy your Dinner at a quiet place with Indian music this is the place. Food was of good taste. Staff were very curteous. If you prefer North Indian food you will enjoy it here.

Situated in a peaceful environment in the middle of a very busy town.Ample parking available. Biriyani was tasty. But prices are bit expensive compared with other Indian restaurants in the town. Staff is not welcoming and friendly.
