Good choice on menu and very attentive staff, although getting the bill at the end can take a bit of time. Keep coming back though - quality of food is excellent.

Busy place...we lucked out getting a table on a busy Friday night. Great service and quick too. The vegetable korma tasted great but seemed to have too much cabbage in it. The paneer curry was excellent and so was the plain and cheese naans.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
