This restaurant was recommended by reception staff at a nearby hotel. This was well justified by the greeting and the excellent food we were served, and the value for money it represented. Well done to the staff for a great experience.

I have eaten at dozens of Indian/Bangladeshi/Nepalese restaurants; this is one of the very, very best.

Tender meat and top quality ingredients in gorgeous sauces...More
