I think overall the atmosphere ruined it, I felt like I was... More

I am sorry but you have mistaken the restaurant you dined in. We do not use table cloths at our Leeds Eastgate branch nor do we sell Ghosht Balti at our restaurant. Sorry that you had this experience at another restaurant. More

They go along very well with the family garlic naans and the biryanis. The best option would be have all the food items in apna style... More
