This place was pioneering. Still great taste. But they're skimming on quantity. Have been for the last couple of years - around the time they got the new owner's relative managing it. I was even told by the other waiters that he orders them to...More

Had an early dinner here recently. My dinner comprised of "saag-gosht" (i.e. lamb curry prepared with grounded spinach) and "roti's". The curry was excellent; freshly prepared and so were the 'roti's". I have never seen such a huge "roti" in my life.
