Four of us went here, staff really friendly, food tasted great. Beware the potato bhaji, can be very spicy if you don't like spicy food. Portions are good. Try the local dishes (Nshima) if like me you like to try traditional food. Well worth the money.

Went for dinner after being referred to by a taxi driver, their masala chai pot is a must have! The place has a cosy feel with Bollywood music playing in the background, staff are friendly and awesome.
