We have travelled around the world, but this remains the best Indian restaurant we have ever been to. The food is inventive, the taste is exceptional and every dish is presented to perfection. The ambiance is also superb. The staff are courteous and welcoming, especially Babu and Wasim. Thank you for a consistently exceeding our exceptions, you are truly outstanding.
