The dosa creeps were excellent for us & so was the Indian masala tea. Definitely can go there again & again for Indian food. Very conveniently located for after drinks or even before drinks next door.

Having heard so much about this restaurant, I thought it time to give it a go. Ive lived in India for many years, and became quite familiar with it's cuisine, and the differences in it between regions.
I had ordered a Goan prawn curry, and had enquired as to the flavoring and whether or not the dish was prepared the typically Goan way, the waitress assured me that it was. What came out was completely different, in my 6years of living in Goa, never had I ever had a green Goan prawn curry, with such strong flavones of coriander....it was completely different to what it should have been. I brought this to the attention of the waitress who then tried to argue that, that is how they do it, and well customers don't complain. So basically because the customers don't know what something should taste and look like...it's ok to mislead them and serve up jst anything. She kept coming back to the table and continued to argue the point.
This all followed after a plate of under cooked samoosas, where the pastry was still raw, which when I asked her to please have them cooked further, she asked me if I would like them well done...thoroughly cooked pastry would have been good enough!
We had asked for our bill, and clearly to make some sort of statement the waitress sent us our bill with what seemed like a sculler from the kitchen.
Whatever happened to decent customer service and manners. It's a shame that most people are not familiar with the different dishes from India, and restaurants like this care nothing in misleading it's patrons. A real shame!!!
