Beautiful meal as always. Lamb Biryani was fabulous (never disappoints) and the Goan Fish Curry and Chicken Korma were delightful. Peshwari naan an absolute must as were the aubergine pakora! Highly recommended. 👍

Food here is magnificent. Not the multitudinous twenty page menu you get in other Indian (Pakistani) restaurants, but a short menu of delicious, hand crafted, fresh food. Prices are average for this class if restaurant, but the restauranteur, a lovely chap, by the way, always...More
