We visited this lovely restaurant when staying at the Beverley Garland Hotel. It is only a 10 minute walk and well worth it. Small, intimate with the friendliest staff and great food. We have lots of Indian restaurants in the UK but this could rival any of them. We had the mixed starter, chicken tikka masala, chicken bhuna with the... More

Dinner opening is later. The staff are very friendly; largely young, personable staff who obviously have a following of local, take out patrons. I ordered a favorite:... More

Small, unassuming yet intimate setting. High-touch, warm attentive service. Flavorful cuisine catering to your needs. My all time favorite place for Indian food and great cup of chai. Good for couples, business, groups (and children at lunch).

Visiting my son and this place is right around the corner. I wanted some Indian so I ordered some to be delivered. I had the Chicken korma meal, it came with naan, rice, and dessert. The food arrived fresh, hot, and decent. I really liked the soup. I ordered way too much and had some leftovers for lunch next day.... More

My daughter loved it so much when we woke the next morning she asked if we could go back for lunch! The outside of... More

The dinner combo was awesome. We ordered for kid as well as ourselves and it's totally worth it. Starting Salad, papad, main course and desert were all good.
