Beautifully set out restaurant. I can't eat overly spicy food, or food with sugar. I was very impressed when the waiter went through the whole menu with me, and was able to tell me exactly which dishes were suitable for me. Our meals were served...More

We didn’t fancy cooking so headed here. Really lovely meal. A few other tables occupied so it had some atmosphere. Great value for money. Ate as much as I could and took the rest for lunch tomorrow. Great service. Nice evening.

I have not eaten better Indian food than here. I tried the lamb saag, and it was perfectly seasoned, bringing out the richness of the sauce. Although they did not have many local beer, the Kingfisher Strong was a perfect accompaniment to the meal.
