You can rely on this Indian food as being very authentic - mostly use it in a take-away capacity. Very conveniently located for pick up and it is usually ready in 15 mins.

Had a lovely meal last night. Food was lovely. Had the chicken korma, shared a vegetarian platter which came out on a sizzling on plate. And had the best Mango lassi ever. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Happy to go back.
