Went here on the basis of several recommendations and glad we did. A bit more expensive than some of the local competition but a significantly more varied and interesting menu. Very busy but overall a very enjoyable experience.

A contemporary Indian restaurant. Huge selection of traditional and specialist dishes. I ate a split meal, dopiaza and saagwala with pilau rice which was delicious. This means you get to try two different main courses. The service was exceptional. It was my sister's birthday and...More
