We were told about this place by the hotel concierge. What luck. Went there several times. Great food! The owner was there each time and is very friendly and serves delicious Indian dishes and the staff is very helpful as well. This restaurant is on a somewhat busy street so if you like to eat and talk and watch the happenings, this is the place to go. If you want the crazy large street corner buzz with so much noise it is hard to have a good conversation, then this probably isn't the place for you. Looking forward to going again.

The title says it all.

I had Chicken tikka masala, perfectly produced (spiciness Just right - enough to justify the Heineken on tap).

Feels like a family business (but not)

The negative reviews bring the average down, but they are mostly about service/attitude.

Well, from TV we should now know that the best chef/managers sometimes are fuelled by attitude.

Just go and enjoy the food and ambience.

We went here to have our dinner.Behaviour of owner( most probably,bcoz this person seemed to be the most influential one amongst the staffs) was very bad and rude.Non cooperative.Won’t recommend it to anyone.Food was nice but a bit more expensive than other Indian restaurants present nearby.

Not recommended for Indian Tourists. One of the staff member, who attended us was very rude and behaved in an insulting manner. As an indian tourist, if u find an Indian restaurant close to your hotel with good reviews then u feel really very happy. The restaurant opened at 5pm and we entered the place to have some nice pre-evening snacks. We asked the attendant to get us one masala tea, one onion pakora and one chicken soup. The attendant immediately told us that this is not enough and we need to order main course along with these snacks. We said that its only 5pm and we are not that hungry. We also said that the restaurant is close to our hotel and will be coming back at 7:30pm for dinner. The attendant then told us in a very rude manner to go and come back at 7:30pm and took the food menu with him. Both me and my wife felt very insulted and disheartened as we had quite a lot of expectations from this place. We are never going to this place again and will recommend our friends and relatives to not go there either.
