This place is fantastic - atmosphere alone is great. Totally chilled, good service and food is the best I have had in a while. Just found out it’s closing soon though so get down while you can!

Up until recently, I had only tried the thali - great variance of pickles and chutney with plenty of rice and the main - whether it be a chicken based curry or minced lamb has been the star of the plate. Now with the recent...More
