An excellent place for a dinner with friends and family. The ambience is calm and make you feel comfortable. Food is delicious, especially the naans which is a must try here.

The food is too spicy for certain dishes. The quality of the chicken to mee it feels like its processed. The nans taste off.... The sheek kebabs are nice. We own 2 Indian takeaways therefore are experienced in how certain Indian dishes should taste
