While it's famous for its Tandoori chicken and nasi kandar, i only look forward to its chicken milani than can't be found anywhere else. It's rich creamy tumeric gravy makes the grilled chicken a very tasty dish.

We came across this place entirely by accident whilst wandering through Little India. Initially attracted by the sheer number of occupied tables compared to other places in the area, after trying the food we can see why! We ordered various chicken dishes and naan and...More

Same old bad service as the one in town.. it's almost like they think they are doing customers a favor by taking orders. I have described the service before as "condescending", to that I add "aggravating". Maybe they have a school for the franchise on...More
