Fantastic extensive menu in a romantic restaurant. The service is excellent, the food is very good and spicy. Great curry flavours. BYO. Large venue across 3 shop fronts. I had a fish dish and a beef dish, both were delicious. I recommend this to everyone.

I entered with the greetings of wait staff. And When we started ordering and eating, Entree was so good. And talking about BBQ Chicken Briyani, I never had such Briyani. Loved the Food and environment. Going to visit soon.
