As the name would suggest, it certainly is an 'invitation to dine'! We've been coming here for years, the staff are always friendly, attentive and always take great pride with the food they serve from the chefs in the kitchen. The menu is diverse, they offer a great range of dishes to suit anyone's taste buds. A great place for... More

My Father, Uncle and I have just finished dinner here and I wanted to immediately write a review. The food is excellent, the paratha deliciously flakey and the saag gosht was flavoursome, full of spinach and perfectly cooked lamb. The freshness of the ingredients is obvious in the fantastic end result. The portion sizes are generous and the staff were... More

It took some time to for a waiter to take our order and then one hour for the food to arrive, a further hour for the main course. Fortunately we were happy chatting and the... More

From the outside, you wouldn't think this is actually a very high quality restaurant, but once opened the door you will start reconsidering. The food is delicious, very well made and tasty. The service is also very customer-oriented. I would definitely recommend it!
