It's easy to find Indian places that have "watered down" versions, catering more to the locals than sticking to the authentic spice and flavours of the cuisine. This place is not one of them. Very centrally located, tasty authentic Indian food, and best of all, very attentive wait staff. Even if your server is occupied, someone else will come to... More

Having a simple ambience, but nicely served food. Well cooked, very tasty Indian delicacies .large quantity is served. Order for one can fill stomach of two. If you like to taste Indian delicacies , one must try this joint. Reasonable rates, centrally located will suit your requirements.

Came perfectly timed... More

Five of us (two vegetarians) had a nice dinner at Cross Culture. We started with two ASSORTED PAKORA that was served with chutney (nothing special). Then the SHRIMP TANDOORI appetizer (as a main dish) and SHRIMP BIRYANI (a HUGE portion) for non-vegetarians. Two NAVRATNA KORMA and one PANIR MASALA came with two bowls of rice. Not that we needed more... More

The service was very good. Then there was the food! We ordered 3 dishes. One was better than the next. The Chicken Tikka Masala (everyone gets this) was excellent. But the Goan Fish was wonderful. If I had a straw I would have just slurped it up! We have been to similar restaurants and this one was one of the... More
