This restaurant sits on a strip of Exchange Street that has a number of very good restaurants. It holds its own. Especially interesting is a dish called "Ants climbing a tree".

I enjoyed this place. I had the lamb biryani along with some aloo naan bread and I thought they were both excellent. The server did a good job and didn’t rush us, which was also nice. I would come back.

I liked this place. It was surprisingly empty on a Friday night, but as a result, the atmosphere was much quieter and nicer. I had an eggplant dish and asked for it at the spiciest level (which I think was "fire.") The dish had "kick"...More
