Service was fine, reasonable prices. Food was very average though. We had the Jeera and an Achari and neither of us could taste anything from them, nice nan bread though and dips. Got 2 feee drinks for the bland mains. £46 for 2 inc 2 pints and 2 cokes

We asked whether it would be possible to be served quickly and we were offered a very quick and friendly service.

Great food from here, and good service, one of the hidden gems of Kilburn- service is friendly and you can get a takeaway too.

Thoose gems that are a bit hidden away are often the most rewarding ones. They put their money and passion in the reception and in the food. Very good food and lovely people. A must visit for lovers of food from India
