Having called in at the last minute to see if there was a table in an obviously busy restaurant we were soon able to see why we had to take the last table available. The Poppadum's and pickles were a rich selection of heats and tastes. The curry's we ordered were fresh, tasty and not at all oily, add to... More

Had seen previous reviews and recommendations so chose to eat there. Very disappointed. Pathia was neither sweet or hot. The lamb in the shashlik was very tough. All together a complete let down
