Room is quiet nice and charming. The food is from good to very good depending what you choose. The service adds nothing special but at the end the bill is far from expensive

Just happen to discover backstreet 30 yrs old Indian Bangladeshi curry house with very friendly n easy going staffs. Though there is limited dishes all sounds delicious. Must try dishes Tandoor fish, hara mug, karai lamb and banana curry. Only bad about this place is that it does not have any chain.

Back street, hard to find. We stumbled on it and it looked good so we went in. It's very nice and the staff were great and gave advice on what was good. It was also quite full so it may be me but I just didn't find the food to be tasty as you would expect. I tried my wife's and thought the same. She liked hers by the way but she doesn't like too spicy. If you do like spicy, give this one a miss.

We booked a table and had to wait for about 20 minutes without any apologies. They were wrong with one of our dishes and they offered it to us. However, they tried to make us pay for it and we had to tell them that was not fair because it was their mistake, so that they changed the bill but were not happy at all. Just disappointing to see that in a restaurant of that quality. We were expecting much better service and also more detail with the customers after spending good money because it's not cheap.

We expected a more run of the mill Indian restaurant (which I love), but were surprised to find a more modern and upscale atmosphere and menu. They don't offer your classic curries, but instead some interesting new flavors that were delicious! We liked our chicken entree better than our fish. Had the cauliflower (amazing) and pumpkin (unique and yummy) as sides, and naan of course :)
