Very reasonable portions and prices. Service and food quality were excellent. We also enjoyed eavesdropping on our neighbor's conversation about where in the world to live next.

Loved this cozy Indian restaurant in Nopa. I especially liked the chicken tikka masala. We wolfed everything down with some Indian beer.
