Excellent range of tasty vegetarian food. Very good wine. The portions were a bit large but that is not a bad problem. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Absolutely delicious food, fragrant spices and beautifully balanced. Our favourite is the spinach, mushroom and cashew biryani. So lovely you never want to finish the plate. There is always vegan options although perhaps a few more dessert choices for vegans would be nice.
