We visited the restaurant for the first time and it was a special occasion. The food was amazing, uniquely and delicately flavoured and the service was superb, all in a very pleasant and tastefully decorated establishment. Some photos of the yummy deserts so artistically presented! Amaya, you made our evening even more.special 👏🎉🎂👌

I booked us for lunch (I had an appointment with a rugby match that night) on a Friday a couple of days... More

Just popped in an hour before opening & booked my place. Throughly modern restaurant. Based mainly upon grilling/roasting - over coals or in... More

Try the grilled shellfish and pepper chicken dishes with biryani. We are from Hong Kong and as Chinese people we love good Indian food. This is now our firm favourite!

The service as usual perfect, the food absolutely amazing and the atmosphere very pleasant. It is nice to know such good places and appreciate them... More
