Its a nice little restaurant tucked away in Calder alley. The food is served buffet style. It's actually quite good, particularly the warm Naan.

This is a delightful place with excellent food, service, and ambiance. Mango lassi––great; lamb curry–great; butter chicken––great; saag paneer––great. The dim lighting and soft music were perfect. The owner is so nice and came by our table and chatted as we left.
