It's a best run family run restaurant that simply has awesome food. I have never disappointed by a meal there. The prices are not outrageous and definitely within reason for the amount of food you get. The servings are substantial. Wonderful all around.

Amazing food and probably has the best ambience compared to the other indian restaurants i have seen to. Efficient customer service adds on the value. Butter chicken & mango chicken are to die for. Naan breads ate amazing.

This is a review of the REVIEWERS. Why are the 5 star ratings all given by FIRST TIME REVIEWERS? Could it be that these reviews are FRIENDS/STAFF of the owner? You decide.

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
