The food was amazing. I loved the smaller portion sizes as we were able to order variety of dishes and tried more. I will definitely return to try the other dishes. A real gem.

Like most of us, I’ve been visiting Indian restaurants since forever. Most provide the British Indian experience with onions, oil, a bit of chilli and the originality of the number 7 bus. Some take us a little further upmarket with a few identifiable ingredients and...More
