No wonder this is Gordon Ramsey's choice when he is in the area. The food is outstanding, the service is immaculate and the atmosphere is wonderful. What more can I say?

I have been visiting this restaurant for years and love it! The food is delicious and the chefs consistently deliver a great dining experience, every time you go. Interesting menu and new dishes are added quite regularly. Friendly service and professional at the same time.

The chicken makhani and prawn dishes are delightful and the naan bread is magical. Recently I tried the tarka dhal too, and I can't wait to go back.... More
