Both dishes were over-salted. Tandury Lamb Chops were burned, partially char coaled.

We had dinner on Christmas day and it was a really nice meal. The service was attentive, portions were generous, seasoning was spot on. We especially liked the Coconut Chicken Curry, the Punjabi Fish and the Prawn Tikka Masala. All the breads were tasty too! The Tandori lamb was a bit tough. Parking was easy. We don't live in the city, but we will eat there again if we are in the city and looking for a yummy Indian meal.
