Nice Indian food be can be a bit pricy . I always order food from the menu, any outside the menu can be very costly. I usually go there for lunch.

After a long drive, we reached the restaurant close to 9.45 pm along with three children. The Restaurant closes at 10.00 pm. But the person who served us (Mr. VelRaj) was very courteous and requested us to place the order as early as possible so that he could request the kitchen staff to prepare for us. He also informed us... More

Fortunately for us, friends had started to whisper about how this restaurant had... More

Very disappointing service. The waiting time is approximately 30~ 40 minutes sometimes and the waiters dont inform it when taking the order. Happened more than once.

Nice North Indian food. The chicken kebab was tasty but a bit too dry. The portion is getting smaller though. Nice cosy ambience but parking is a bit tight especially during celebrations period.
