Another great meal , subtle flavours, smart presentation, knowledgeable and friendly staff..
Had the monkfish main which was cooked perfectly with a hint of chilling but not overpowering
The reccomendation of lemon rice and roshiti ( a kind of spicy warm salsa) was just perfect.

Only been here a couple of times but the service is always fast efficient and friendly. The food is a little different to your traditional Indian and beware portions are a bit smaller than you would expect but good value nonetheless.
