Both the tikka masala and paneer matar were to die for. Absolutely delicious, with plenty of paneer and chicken. Naan breads were also delightful. Waiters were friendly, efficient and fun. 10/10 would eat again.

The yellow Dal was delicious. The staff were friendly and polite and the service was great. The food took a while but it was worth the wait.

We had the banquet for two which was substantial and very nice. The owner Ray was friendly and chatted to the customers. We drank Kingfisher beer with our dinner which is a must have accompaniment with Indian food. Highly recommended.

We decided to find a place for dinner at one of the many restaurants on this street that allows pedestrian traffic only. If you want Indian food, then this is the place. We sat outside on a pleasant evening and soon were entertained with music from a group playing a short distance down the street. We could have opted for... More
