Came here with a group from work and had a very enjoyable dinner. The staff was kind (if a bit unsure of many dishes' preparation and ingredients) and the food came out quickly. A fair price for the overall quality.

This restaurant has some very promising reviews and the decor and layout was also promising,so we were very keen to try the food, but left very disappointed. We had two curry dishes and a mix of naans and roti. The curries had heat and meat but little flavour or texture - our saag was more like a spinach puree. The roti was overcooked and even burnt in places, and all over too crisp almost like a tortilla chip. The naan was also fairly flavourless and dry. The service was OK but not particularly helpful.

The restaurants take on Indian Food is excellent. High quality ingredients, some fun fusion dishes and an extensive but affordable menu. Plus the space is lovely and they make good cocktails too. Delivery is also an option via grubhub

The food here is great although a little pricy but it's definitely authentic. The service though could use some improvement. I'm not sure if there weren't enough wait staff but things were forgotten and the waitress just seemed really out of it. Also, mild is not mild at this restaurant. Everything is pretty spicy so if you are dining with someone who has a hard time with spices I would suggest going elsewhere.
