As we were in Glasgow and we were staying next door, we decided to pop in, I chose the madras, thinking when it arrived I would have to get extra chillies. Well this was the best curry I've ever...

One of my favourite restaurants. The service is impeccable and the food is second to none. The bombay mussles in particular are exquisite. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Visited this restaurant with friends and went for the business lunch option. Between us we tried the mixed pakora, lamb Bhuna, South Indian Garlic Chilli along with Keema, Peshwari and Garlic Naans. I also had a Mango Lassi. Food was decent and the menu was decent value.
