“Good Indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

They have both Indian food and Western dishes, a little bit too pricey, but the food was always good. They also have free wi-fi.

“Great Lemon Rice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

Staff were very keen for business, pulling anyone and everyone off the street in a way some might see as a little over-friendly. Staff are quite casual and as a result service is reasonably slow.
Good sized portions for reasonable prices and quite tasty food.
We had a problem with a milkshake which was sorted out without hassle and with apologies (refreshing for India!)
Nice and shady under a tree but this does mean plenty of leaf fall in a breeze.

“Friendly place with good food in the middle of the action”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

I had a good time there, and the food was great. I see here that a lot of people say it took for ever for food to arrive on the table but I don't remember that being a problem for me - it's a great place for watching people and it has free wifi. Also, the waiters are nuts and quite a lot of fun to talk to

“Nice open space, but service is really poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

The place is nice and friendly. Many tables outside.
The staff is high and you may either enjoy if you have time, or hate it if you want to be considered at least as a real customer.
Food is ok. Prices are a bit high if you consider that you're in the street and not in a closed area.
I've been there and it was ok, but I won't go there again.
However, free wifi.

“Don't go there if you are very hungry.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

This place is unreal, took them one hour to make a Dahl fry and grill Kalamary. They also delivered the food to the wrong table most of the time. Too expensive for what it is and the food is just so so.
