I enjoyed an exquisite dish from the North of India I never saw before on any menu. Friendly staff and tasteful decoration did the rest.

Enjoyed lunch here the other day in a group of 8. The service was good. The food was fantastic. It was the best Indian I have had in a long time. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go back.

Great service and high-quality Indian food. Open late during the after New Year's holiday period was great too as many other restaurants were closed.
