Service was prompt. Starters were good. Tandoori chicken was spiced to order (sauce). Naan and roti were hot and nicely prepared. Don’t forget the mango lassi’s.

This was a pleasant change of pace. The staff are very friendly and the service was unbelievably fast. The staff help to recommend the degree of spice and it made the meal. Very affordable and very feeling, highly recommended when you need a change.
