There may be a different chef, or the chilli powder/chilli may be hotter. Both the Beef Korma and Chicken masala were dominated by the chilli flavour. But the both the rice and pararatha were perfect.

A small casual restaurant that served up delicious flavours and plenty to eat. The mixed starters is enough for a main if you don't have a big appetite. The chilli chicken options have amazing flavour and well presented.
