I recommend this restaurant for anyone who enjoys East Indian cuisine. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, full bar. Parking may be tricky on a busy night. We walked a few blocks from our B&B.

I usually chose Indian food over Chinese food all day long as I prefer the full on flavour. However, I was very disappointed with the Biryani I got here. It was practically tasteless as was the Jalfrezi my wife chose. I would not return if...More
