Simply the best North Indian / Pakistani food that's also affordable. Great staff and nice ambience. Always great for a night out with friends and family. Gets really crowded at peak times.

They do a good lamb biryani and mango lassi. Always very busy and do find it consoling that food is more likely to be fresh. Enjoyed all my meals here and is always an A lister on my Curry night list. They even have a...More
