I have been to so many restaurants and most of them can't make the curry like how I want them to. But this restaurant did it! The curry was spot and. Salivating as I am writing this!

I went here with my family, I have two young children and this was a fantastic place to take them. The staff spoke to my children and made sure they was safe when bringing out food. Service was on top and food was really fantastic. Over all I would recommend you to try this place as a restaurant.
