Masala tea is one of the best, ordered so much - plates of grilled and curry fish, chicken, biryani, papadum, and a whole lot more! Book early to avoid walk-in disappointment.

Yummy indian food, paneer butter masala (I think this is what it's called) was the best dish of all, briyani was nice and grainy, meat was so tender and melt in the mouth.
