This is a nice place, interesting decor and very competent Indian food but nothing to make it really stand out from lots of other Indian restaurants. If you're a fan of Indian food you won't be disappointed here, but you probably won't be blown away either. Service is friendly if a little slow.

I invited 12 Ladies here for my 30th birthday as i am totally in love with everything Indian. So on April 12 2014 with an extremely exited attitude i had this experience: The 4 starter platters I ordered (days before) came out 1.5 hours after arrival. On the website it states that the birthday person gets a free beer, wine, or soft drink, i was asked to pay for mine. There was NO music playing (dead atmosphere) and when I asked for music I was told it is just very soft, all my guest was stunned by that! Also did the waitress not take my order for maine and i had to go order at reception. And i would have thought for special functions like this, i would at least get a sparkling candle in my desert -pardon the pun- I feel terrible regret ..you only turn 30 once!

The food here is so yummy. My husband and I love our Indian food, and we weren't disappointed! The owners of the restaurant have also taken a great deal of time to decorate, which makes the experience even better. Great value for money.

The décor within this restaurant was fabulous which creates a great atmosphere. The ceilings were decorated with various cloths, Indian dolls hanging round the walls, lovely table settings. The staff were super friendly and explained different things on the menu. The food was fantastic and not expensive. We were the last to leave and at no time felt hurried.
