I came for lunch. The set menu was very good. I particularly enjoyed the naan which was light and delicate and some of the best I have ever eaten.

We had starters of pakora and lamb chops, a main course of chicken and spinach curry plus rice and a naan and a couple of drinks each. The cost was very reasonable and the food was really good, especially the naan and the chicken. It...More

Excellent advice for which vegetarian dishes we should combine. My and my daughter combined the potato and caulifour curry with the vegetable biryani (no extra rise needed) with garlic name and a very nice cucumber/yoghurt mixture.

This is an old-fashioned Indian restaurant with an extensive menu to choose from. We have eaten here twice over the years, once for lunch when it was crowded at midday and recently in the evening when there were few other customers. There are several vegetarian...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
