We had dinner and all dishes we ordered were excellent- dhal, biryani rice, papadams, naan, potatoes with peas. The place is small and it was full. We arrived at 19.30 just in time before it got crowded. I highly recommend it if you are in the neighborhood.

We all ordered different dishes, and everything was very tasty! Nice atmosphere, great service, and incredible food. The lamb curry and the tandoori chicken were my favorites.

I went there once with other family members on the weekend, and once with with co-workers. The place is small and cosy, nice ambient, and great Indian food, with various hotness. I would return more when I am around, loved the place and the people.

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor we had to try the food. The starters main course nan bread and the curries were excellent and as good as the UK indian curries if not better. The waiters were very friendly and talked to the children.

Simply one of the best indian we have had in Europe! We tried their meal/thali option for 2 and we enjoyed it every bit. The portions were huge but very tasty that we ended up eating everything. Each item had its own unique taste, flavoursome which you normally dont get in most indian restaurants due to reuse of same base...... More
