This was a great stop for indian food. The service was extremely fast, helpful, and courteous. The food options were great with a lot to choose from. I would reccomend again and if I lived near would probably make it on of my regular stops.

Caught up with a friend in London who loves Indian food. He had not tried this restaurant before and wanted to as he had heard good reviews. We had onion Bhakti, Dhaka Murgh, Jaflong lamb, Biyani Bazaari special Murgha, garlic nan and 2 rice. I am not a huge fan of spicy food but found my dish to be very flavoursome and not hot at all. The other dishes were very tasty as well and our friend stated he was very impressed with the flavours/quality and quantity of the food. Service was very good, although I did feel we were rushed out the door as they packed up the dishes and the table cloth while we were still sitting at the table. Decor was nice and they seemed to be busy for a Wednesday night.

Visited one Friday evening and although it was very busy, they managed to squeeze us in.
Menu selection is massive and it took quite some time for us to choose from the vast array of regional dishes.
Not too long after ordering,our feast arrived. every dish was beautifully cooked and very tasty. Staff were all very friendly and I would highly recommend a visit.

Really surprised by the overwhelming positive reviews for this place.
Friendly staff, reasonably priced but food really not that great both in terms of quantity and quality. Portions were small and very little depth of flavour.
Limited vegetarian and vegan options too.
