A restaurant tucked away with its entrance in an arcade. Well worth seeking out as the meal was excellent and very reasonably priced.

Had the fish tikka, tarka dall, chingri special and the korma - all very, very good. Only negatives were the rice (was it actually basmati?) and the amount of potato in the king prawn special (felt like they were bulking it up with the cheapest ingredient). But I'd definitely return and it was good value.
