Cute and small modern Indian restaurant with very pleasant service. Quite extensive menu. Food a bit too stoggy (even for Indian) for my taste.

You have to book as there are only 6 tables but it is a fabulous Indian. Good value and first class food with great service. You should definitely visit here if in the area and looking for a good Indian. It's easy to get there...More
