Rate this place highly and recommend very easily. absolutely baffles me how anyone couldn't enjoy this place. Very low key, and low frills set up however the food is authentic and an absolute pleasure to experience.

We ordered 2 dishes and had a mouthful each and spat it out. Unfortunately this was the worst Indian food we've ever tasted. It was a massive drama to get a refund. The owner was very rude. We ended up getting one. The korma just tasked like off cheese and the palak paneer had the strangest taste. It left an... More

This is our local Indian restaurant. My kids love the butter chicken and rice. The garlic naan is my favourite. Spicy means spicy 🌶🌶🌶

I eat here regularly as I've found it to be among the best Indian I've experienced. The location is nothing special and the atmosphere is limited but the food is awesome. I suspect they do 80% takeaway, it has a great reputation among locals. Indian owners/chef travels regularly to India. Genuinely great Indian cuisine.

We visited today with my family and friends the choice of selections are good as well they have buffet. My favorite is the sizzling tandoori chicken and cheese chilli nan. No doubt butter chicken is the most famous dish there, i went with hot butter chicken just to avoid that sweet taste.. They served the mango lazzi in a nice... More

If you like butter chicken then this is the place for you, if you prefer other Indian meals I suggest going elsewhere, all sauces were thin like they have been watered down and the lack of flavour matches the watery texture

We were going to a show at the Entertainment Centre and were looking for somewhere close to have a meal. Saw this place and decided to give it a try and boy we were not disappointed. We had some of the best Indian food we have ever tasted. The Lamb Rogan Josh was superb with the lamb falling to bits... More

Good Indian food, well prepared in a quaint environment. The inside is certainly no frills, but why should it be when you are visiting to have good Indian food. The service was good and overall provides good value

I have been going to this restaurant for quite a while, and it has never failed to delight. The owners are lovely, accomodating people, with a dedication to cooking amazing food. The food is very well priced, and the servings are big too. Friday and Saturday nights are Buffet night, with a wide selection of delicious dishes, but you can... More

It is a small Indian restaurant which has been operated by the same owner/chef for over a decade. The food is excellent and cheap. It is the only Indian restaurant where my wife and I do not share. We each like our own choice too much
