My partner and I came here on my birthday, the meals were delicious and also a really good service from both waiter and the waitress. Definitely different from other Indian restaurants, in a good way - will come back again :)

Indian food is better than even in restaurants in India. We tried several different CHAATS and all were superb. Pav Bhaji was outstanding. Sharabi Lassi was amazing. For Indian cuisine this is the place

Dined here as part of a First Table booking. Food came quickly once the order was placed. Shared a selection of street food dishes and breads between the group. So tasty and fun! Loved the location and atmosphere. We'll be back :)

Dropped in for a dinner for 4 unannounced. Seated immediately and we selected a range of food to share. The beer and wine selection were good and the food was very tasty. We will return.

We went there to have dinner in February 2018, and it was amazing. We ordered several dishes off their street-food menu so we could try the most without having to pay too much. We needed some advice when choosing our meals, but the friendly waitress...More
