Prices are below of what you could expect for the high quality of the food served! Every plate is good and we stayed with the classics lamb vindalu, chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken and rice!! But... More

The staff were polite and pleasant but could be a little more attentive. The food was average. The coconut Goa fish curry was tasty but a little overdone and dry. My husband ordered the lamb curry from the chef special menu and enjoyed it. The rice we ordered could have been warmer but the garlic naan bread was very nice.... More

The restaurant is in a stunning building, with big pillars & really grand design. The service was very friendly however the food was very average, the curries were lacking any real flavour so was quite disappointed, low price at least

Delicious food! Husband and I shared the yellow lentil fritters, chicken tikka masala, nan bread and a dessert. Also enjoyed an Indian beer and a rose water lime lemonade, yum! Service was attentive, filling our water glasses often. Would definitely return!
