I have been an annual goer to the 'Aaja Nachle' nights- my friends and I look forward to the food, but most of all the music/dancing. It's really one of the few places you can go to in East London for such events; imagine our dismay when the majority of the music played was English club music!!! Don't get me... More

We dined here one evening during a visit to London. The service we received was only satisfactory and the meal was "different". I have eaten many chicken biryanis but none like this one. It was almost too hot to eat and was served dry without the usual vegetable curry sauce. My partners meal was described as hot and spicy yet... More
