Irana...a combination of Indian or Thai. I regularly visit Ravine and Tilly to enjoy a wide range of delectable curries that are specially prepared and well priced. For a truly authentic Indian experience, you must visit Irana

When a wise old man had a dream and literally ran out of time someone had to take up the responsibility of making that dream possible. A chef for 45 years, he served the industry selflessly perfecting his art day by day. His name was IRANA Gooranah. Today Irana fulfils that dream. But this dream is built on the art inherited from this wise old man - the art of satisfying the most discerning connoisseur of fine food.
