I have been going to this and that for about 6 years, and without fail it always has me leaving with a smile on my face. The staff are friendly, and happily explain what goes into their dishes. Great options for meat eaters and veggies....More

LOVE LOVE LOVE. I don’t think I’ve had such authentic Indian food until this meal. It tasted amazing, right amount of salt and spice. No frills, no fancy garnishes or decorations, just a pure focus on the food. It being cheap is a bonus!
