“Best Indian food in a long time”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

while looking for a restaurant to eat, we found this restaurant after parking the car. It was the only Restaurant that had any business and there were several tables occupied while all other restaurants in neighborhood had only two tables occupied at most. So we chose to eat there. The staff is very friendly and helpful with deciding what to eat. We had the Samosa as appetizer. Very good and presentation is top. For main course we wanted something spicy. We had the Murgh Methiwala and the Handi Gosht. Just spicy enough but not over powering for our taste. With that we had different kinds of Naan and also Pulao rice.
I must say that this was the best Indian food we had since we left the Middle East. We are in Richmond only for a visit, but will go back for another taste before we leave to return to home.
It is sort of pricy, but well worth it!

“Very good, was AMAZING though, chef change?”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I've loved this restaurant for ages and rate it as the best local indian anywhere I've lived. But recently the amount of salt in each dish has being overpowering. Not sure if it's a new chef, different salt they are using or what. More reluctant to visit now but their seabass and saag are still delicious. Lovely staff.

“Great Indian Food”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Great food, and not of the "Chicken Tikka Masala" style either. I didn't recognise many of the titles, but everything was very tasty, nicely presented and quickly delivered. Attentive staff were helpful and the experience was great.

“Lovely posh indian, not your average curry n a pint place”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Lovely food, we took a friend who didn't do Indian food. Well she does now. A menu to suit those who don't like spicy, as well as those that do. Helpfull staff but could be better. The food is amazing though, we always go back.
