    As a group of 5, all of our food was excellent and arrived together. Portions were adequate and overall would highly recommend. I had the Duck Tikka starter which was very tender.

    Indian food restaurant. Amazing food, amazing service, very nice place and delicious food. Ask the waiter for recommendation they will explain everything to you to the finest detail. Also ask for the meals that are less spicy if maybe you can't handle the spicyness. I recommend reserving it at least a day early (you can do that via website). We came there a bit earlier prior to our reservation and they handled as very professionally and we even got our table earlier and it was not a problem at all.

    It was a delightful experience. They clearly use high-quality ingredients and offer delicious dishes. Nasim served us tonight, and he was exceptional—knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I opted for their specialty, which was gunpowder chicken and it was excellent

    Excellent Indian food!! I would highly recommend their fried puri, and samosas for appetizers. For main dish’s the chicken biryani was lovely. The chef special lamb curry good and spicy. Don’t forget to order their ice cream with mango!! It was the highlight of the whole meal
