Had a nice meal here. Attentive service with a full and wide ranging menu. On the other side of Ocean Road compared to other restaurants so it is easily missed. For a Friday night it wasn't very busy.

I can definitely recommend the lamb Sylheti Kashi - similar to a Rogan but a little spicier. But the whole experience was spoiled by a... More

I go a couple of times a month and have done so for around 8 years. Never had a bad meal, waiting staff are attentive and friendly. Always willing to advise on a dish. Great restaurant.
