We were here two years ago and enjoyed a satisfying evening. We were glad to see that they have kept up the quality of the food. The ambiance here is more upscale than some of the other Indian establishments. A bit noisy, but what can...More

Came here on a quiet weekday night. There was a large group in there, and we were warned that our food could take a bit longer than usual to come out - fair enough, and appreciated the warning. When the good did come out, there...More

This place was totally underwhelming. Dirty tables left for over an hour, other diners complaining about wait times, the food was average at best and took an absolute age to arrive. Maybe it was a bad day at the office for them but I fear...More

I like saucy dishes and as long as I can tone down the heat a bit I can do spicy; this restaurant gets this right and that's why I tried it again with a friend who says he loves it here. But I don't like...More

Our waitress was very helpful in explaining menu items, and worked with the kitchen to provide us with dishes to our liking. Menu is extensive. The stuffed Naan was a great starter.
