Hi Jim, Thanks for your feedback. We recently introduced Melamine plates in our restaurant to avoid accidents like chipping of crockery plates & pieces falling into the food (we had few such incidents). This are A-grade melamine plates which are BPA free, extremely-light, Oven-safe &...More

This place is a real find. The food is wonderful for those who appreciate authentic Indian food. Look past the little short comings and enjoy the food. It is really worth the visit!!

Delicious food and friendly staff I love to go to spice rack whenever I feel like eating good Indian food, especially at north shore and the staff is also very humble and friendly.

On the menu, it is clearly mentioned that the price of banquet is per person. Banquet pricing in any restaurant is always per person. Sir, you were raving about our food until it came to pay the bill.

Lovely, cozy atmosphere. Beautiful food and friendly service. I've eaten my fair share of curries, but their chicken was cooked to perfection; full of flavour and deliciously tender. We had a very enjoyable meal and will be visiting again!
