Have dined here for many years doing both dine in and take out and I feel that it's overrated. I was raised on Indian fare and I know what true Indian food tastes like and this place is average!

Our favourite spot for Indian cuisine. We usually combine it with a visit to market theatre just 10 mins away. Highly recommend this restaurant.
