“Oustanding indian cuisine”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The food here is unique -- even the cuisine found in every Indian restaurant is made differently here. Don't order without trying the samosas, the best ever! Only downside was our waiter: a little odd, not a great listener, and not particulary helpful when answering questions about nut allergies. The atmosphere made up for his attitude; the food definitely so. Will go again and again.

“fabulous restaurant”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We came here with a couple we had recently met on our travels and we had a fabulous evening. Although we hadn't booked a table they were able to accommodate us. We didn't have to wait long for a table. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. I would certainly recommend it. It was the perfect end to a brilliant holiday.

“The queue is worth waiting!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We just happened to stumble upon this restaurant. Although there was some waiting involved, but the food was tasty enough to make us forget the waiting period.

“Fantastic food, service, ambiance”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Wonderful experience! We had an 8:30 reservation and were seated on time at a beautiful table. We were waited on right away and when we told the waiter that we were unfamiliar with Indian food and prefer less-spicy recipes, he politely recommended our entire meal from appetizers to dessert and his advice was perfect! I highly recommend the Palak Chaat appetizer - super unique and delicious (describing it as crispy spinach won't do it any justice).
