Random visit to Little India the evening before Christmas Eve was very enjoyable. Service was excellent and very friendly and the food delicious. Unlike many Indian Restaurants in the U.K. The menu was cooked without large amounts of Ghee so seemed much more healthy while...More

Fantastic food with possibly the best service in town. The staff are super friendly and always take care of you. I keep going back because you eat like a king and it doesn't cost a royal sum! Do try it!

We had main course and dessert (rogan josh and the mango khulfi icecream) - both delicious, as was the roti bread. Rice cooked the best ever. Very good staff, and from where we were sitting, we could see into the kitchen. It was spotless.

We have chosen to present some of the more characteristic, yet legendary dishes from North India, especially the Punjab. Our preparation makes our food beautiful to behold and addictive to the palate.
