This is the best Indian food that I've had in a while. The quality of the meat was excellent, the flavors incredible and everything was fresh and delicious. Came here after reading about them Yelp and was glad I did. We will definitely be back soon!

The starters are great, good sized portions and lots to choose from. Make sure you ask the waiter to bring the food whilst its still hot! There is lots to choose from in the menu for main dishes too.
