Biryani was great. Goat curry was a bit tough. But the butter chicken and omnipresent tandoori chicken was decent.Chana Bhatura was surprisingly good.They could... More

The staff here is wonderful! Excellent service. We took our family out for dinner. We loved the food. All four of us enjoyed what we selected for our meal. All of us tried food we had never experienced before. My husband is already talking about going back again.
