I went to this place with two of my friends after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor.
We ordered non-veg biryani, paneer makhani and naan and that is where our woes started.

Service was poor and it took 25 minutes for the food to arrive . Our waiter had no clue about our order status. Asked for Onions , were told they are chargeble.

Since we were running out of Curry, we decided to order another but were told that kitchen was closed and were offered some pickle. However the waiter brought a small bowl of Sambhar on his own stating that they did not have pickle. Sambhar tasted pathetic.

Upon receiving the bill I was shocked to see that they had charged for the Sambhar which we never ordered.

Even a bigger shock came when I found out that they even charged for a glass of regular water served to us.

This has been the worst experience I have had at any restaurant ever. Definitely would not recommend this to anyone.

We are 3 friends who wanted to visit Little India for dinner after a full day in the Gardens. Definitely a locals establishment and so tasty. I wish we had tried the fish head curry now that I am reading other reviews but we had a great meal and I got to enjoy my favorite Indian dish Chicken Tiki Marsala

Ok place, the person taking our order was continuously looking at his phone, was not of much help, any question asked he could not take his eyes off the phone, and suddenly we realised he has vanished could not see him anywhere , the order which was placed was not coming so we finally asked another person to check. The first guy never came back and then we had the second person looking after our table. Was not very crowded in the afternoon. Food is ok not great.

Chicken birayani taste was superb. They will serve freshly prepared food.
Multiple options for veg and non veg foods,they will accept the credit cards.
