Two meals, one was good, the other average, was reheated chicken, and don't like the taste of that. There was certainly enough food, but was not up to the quality of a meal we had there a few years ago.

This little gem is tucked away in a side street at the bay and is very authentic. The food was amazing. The rices fantastic. Indian breads delicious. Had lunch with family and order four filling dishes, rice and Mango Lassi. Staff were friendly and authentic.

this place is tucked away in an arcade and easily missed but when you do find it, the feel/atmosphere is authenic as is the food. we tried the butter chicken, the pakora and the naan bread, all of which were very good although my husband...More
