The owner of the restaurant treat the staffs inhumanly (this is story behind). He shouts like a dog and his language is like a dog toward his staffs. The type of staffs he employ: students (who is helpless, whose level of English is poor to get a job in the main trend) or those who has no relatives or friend... More

I have meant to review this restaurant long before now. We go fairly frequently and the food is always excellent. All the staff are charming which helps create the wonderful atmosphere. No matter what other Indian restaurant we try we always return here as we find it delivers the "whole package". I can also recommend their takeaway service for those... More

While it was tasty I was hoping for more spicy Indian food. It is best to split the portion with someone because it was rather large.

Had a very pleasant curry last Friday. Mild curry was very mild, and sweeter than expected. If you like your curry to have a kick, go for the hotter ones.

The restaurant appears quite unpretentious but we were in for a very pleasant surprise. We had a GrabOne voucher that got us two main courses with a side and starters of poppadums' and excellent chutney dips. Our starter... More
