The sparkly lights on the ceiling set the mood as soon as we entered. The food was sublime, British Raj lived up to its reputation. I had a goan curry and my partner the Shatkhora curry. 5/5

Don't judge a book by looking at the cover - and don't judge this restaurant by its rather austere exterior. The food is excellent,
