Went for dinner on a Sunday night. It’s a bit out of the main walkable areas so it’s not so busy. Service was really friendly and food was good. You can experience a truly local experience: Indian food with fries! (we stuck to traditional rice!)

We are regular visitors to Vanilla Spice and food and service are exemplary. Naz and the team do their upmost to ensure the occasion is memorable. The Lamb Naga is outstanding and the chef will adjust the heat of the dish to palate.
