So disappointed. Had great reviews but after they were initially attentative we lost out to a bus tour. 50 minutes later we left, no food. Shame as poppadoms were served with great speed & reviews were good. Won't go back.

I had an entirely reasonable dinner. It was nothing special, but the menu had a lot of options. The Saag Daal as a side was sufficiently amazing that I'd happily return to see if I'd merely made a poor choice of main.

it would be around a half hour walk each way. If you wanted a closer Indian, there is a place called Chutneys which is 10 minutes away which I recommend equally to spice lounge.
