REALLY GOOD value for money and the food was very authentic!
I would definitely visit again because of the quality, my favourite dish was the chicken madras and chicken vindaloo. Delicious!

We were seated promptly. The service was good--the waiter gave suggestions.
We ordered their Tandoori Sampler(Non Veg) which was very tasty, hot and reasonably spicy. Enjoyed the chutney with it.
Then we ordered:- Coconut fried rice which was good along with Layered Paranthas and Garlic naan--these came promptly and were piping hot, tasty and well balanced.
We ordered
1. Goat Roghanjosh--which was very juciy and extremely tasty. My friends who had not eaten goat before ate it all up.
2. Butter chicken which was tender, juicy and spicy.
3. Prawn Masala--the prawns were juicy and fresh but the masala ( spice) had not gone into them--good or bad depending on your viewpoint.

We enjoyed our food--nothing was left on the table. It was quite reasonable as well.

Buffet quality has gone down. Been to this restaurant more than 5 times, and would say the last 3 times the quality of the food and the service is poor. I think the price is way to high for the types of offerings they have for their buffet...

Went for the buffet - it was really good. I enjoyed the Naan bread. There was a good selection. Nothing spicy though. I would go back again - great value.

This is the first indian meal I have truly enjoyed in a long while. We shared a main course tandoori chicken as a starter - which was served without the red dye but still tasted as it should. We then had a chicken korma and lamb madras both of which we would recommend. We hope our return visit will be just as enjoyable.
