Picked this over The Empress a few doors away as the devour and ambiense looked better. They are similar prices. Later tried The Empress and the food is better at there. So same price nicer setting but better food next door.

class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
