Came here 5 years ago and loved it, last night it was just as good as I remembered it. The staff were still as friendly and the Indian cuisine still as delicious....

We order chicken bhoona, special eggplant, lamb saag aloo and beef vindaloo. The food was so good we couldn't stop eating. Saffron rice and naan made for an excellent Indian meal with friends at home
