They have a nice lunch menu with some choices. I always go for the chicken korma as it's so creamy and always delicious. They have nice starters but food can be a little slow sometimes.

Always great food but it is very expensive. I love the Korma and sweet naan bread here. The mango lassi is also great. the crab claw starters are also delicious - would highly recommend. But very pricy.
