The best lamb chop and lamb biryani I have ever had! It was very delicious. Very authentic Indian dishes. The chef and the staff were all nice and friendly. Will definitely come regularly. Highly recommend for all of you! 羊排非常棒,有印度和中国味道的结合,出乎意料的好吃,在国外吃到这样的味道真的很温暖很开心,餐馆的人都非常的友好。找到一家可以经常来吃的地方了。下次还会和朋友再尝试别的菜。
