I go to Blighty's about once a month. The food is wonderful and the steak is 'to die for.' Owner/Hostess Rachelle is always pleasant and takes a real interest in her customers. The menu is limited but everything on it is delicious. Reservations are recommended.

We had high expectations but our experience was average. Chicken breast was fine. Pork vindaloo was not that good.

Yes, on street and in the parking lot beside. Very quiet at night, the only cars are those at Blighty's.

Do you take tour group reservation? What is your seating capacity? Do you have group menu? May I see it online? If I have a tour group of 30 to 50 people, how much may be per person. Thank you
