This place gets busy early on so you need to book. The food is really tasty and service is speedy. The chicken rogan is excellent and the naans are fresh and melt in the mouth. The only drawback is the portions could be bigger.

We chanced upon this restaurant tucked on the 2nd floor. The food is delicious. We got the briyani and the lamb curry , garlic naan and spinach cottage paneer dip. The lassi was also refreshing and the owner a pleasant man to talk to.
