The food is stiil plentiful and the kitchen is clean however the food lacks the expected spices and flavour. I am not just talking about chilli heat but the proper Indian taste and flavourings. There are better alternatives.

I have been to this place many times. Used to be one of the best for low/mid range indian food. The prices have increased a lot the last years. Plus: nice Bollywood atmosphere. Nice food Negative: at the current price levels there are other alternatives.
