We had an early dinner here and found the food to be very good. They make a perfect vindaloo and my wife enjoyed the Mango Chicken. The fresh Peshwari Naan was a hit as well.

Who cares about the decor when the food is this good? You know a restaurant sells amazing food when they don't need to spend a fortune on the furniture.

We have order take away and picked up from the restaurant , the order was vegetarian and there was chicken butter masala instead of paneer. This shouldn't happen. Hopefully it will not be repeated with someone else.

Your senses are set tingling as soon as you enter this unassuming little place right on the highway - fresh herbs and tantalising spices. Pleasant attentive staff were on hand and service was fast. My goat curry, a house speciality, was beautifully tender and the...More
