The food was good, not fantastic, but thats because being an Indian myself I hold the standards for Indian food very high. The staff were fantastic, from the guy outside who we were talking to for ages, to the waitresses. Management seemed quite rude but we didn't let them spoil a wonderful dinner experience.
The prawn curry was amazing according to my friend, he mentioned how fresh the seafood tasted and felt. The samosas were okay, the saag was delicious and the chicken tikka i got was not bad.
Overall definitely worth a visit.

I enjoyed an excellent dinner here with friends the other evening. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. At the end of the meal the owners came up to chat and we enjoyed getting to know them better and hearing stories of the olden days in Zanzibar and Tanganika. We got so into the conversation that they eventually offered us some delicious kulfi ice cream, on the house.

It was a lovely evening all around!

Apparently my review has to be at least 100 characters ... Coconut beef curry and tikka masala was absolutely delicious!
