We love this restaurant. The murgh makhani and gobi musslam are very good as is the vegetarian sampler appetizer. It is a little pricier than some Indian restaurants, but the servings are very generous. We usually have takeaway for another meal. It's a pretty restaurant...More

We love Indian food and have eaten at Indian restaurants all over the world, so we are probably pretty good judges. We had a 1:30 reservation and arrived to find the place pretty empty. We were seated right away and then there was a wait...More
