Its a simple restaurant with an extensive menu. The food is good and portions are fine. We liked the naan with cashew nuts which we had not seen elsewhere and the Chicken Tikka.

Service was good. We had ordered tea, alo paratha, toasted bread, veg sandwich. Alo paratha was not so good else other items were good.

We were taken to this place by our driver, a good job really as we saw no signs to say it is a restaurant. There is just a gap between shops and the building behind is the place. We would not have picked the place ourselves by it's appearance but the food was very good, you could order as much... More

the place is attractive but the food taste is very bad and service is horrible, do not go here, there are better options available.

We just had late lunch here. The naan was very nice, freshly cooked, but that was about it. The veggie curries were disappointing and the cafe itself could do with a tidy up. Won't be eating there again.

I had chicken curry and my husband had fish curry. Both were very good and so were the lassis. The kids had tandoori chicken. This restaurant has a real tandoor so the tandoori chicken and naan were delightful. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

We were taken to this restaurant by our driver. Situated off the main street ,its furniture was very basic but th e menu good and staff helpful. The food was excellent especially the tandoori chicken and prawns. It being difficult to purchase any alcohol, the 'special' tea was most welcome . Would recommend this restaurant.

The fish tikka was really good and plenty of it. My partner had tandoori chicken which was also excellent. Started with hot and sour soup and added some chilli. They checked how spicy we wanted the food before cooking it. We added one portion of rice and a garlic naan and couldn't finish everything, even though we had skipped lunch....... More
