One of the best mid-range Indian restaurants in London. The butter chicken and the tandoori chicken are amazing. Real taste of Punjab, unlike the fake Indian restaurants that sprawl the city. Highly recommended.More

This was my second visit and I strongly recommend this indian restaurant. The food is excellent and the restaurant offers a large choice of Punjab dishes. Also a good and central location, close to Covent garden.
