This place closed way too early on a Friday night (10.30) and really doesn’t answer the question, i.e. I asked do you close at 10.30 or do you take last orders at 10.30? They just wouldn’t answer. The food was satisfactory but nothing to write...More

Not a great meal, although fresh ingredients and good quality seafood the sauces on both the jinga shrimp starter and jinga shrimp jalfrazi were very bland. Overall very average and over priced.

An extensive menu of classic Indian cuisine with classics service. Every dish I have had has been delicious. Reservations recommended as it tends to fill up in the evenings.
