I stumbled across this place while looking for something to eat. I've never had Indian food and decided to give it a try. I loved the ambiance I saw when I peeked through the window. I walked in and was received with a warm greeting from a sweet Jamaican girl and the manager. The food was so good that I... More

The service was very good but the food was inconsistent in its taste. We ordered 4 dishes - 2 were good (carrot ginger soup and the nan bread) but the other 2 were bad (chicken tikka masala which was different from any chicken tikka masala we have ever had, and tasteless vegetarian samosa). Also - quite expensive.

First, please allow me to say the food and service was so great that my group and myself went back the next day for more. As a vegan, I seek out great eateries and finds. Although, this restaurant is not vegan, there are great vegan options as well as information. The appetizers, and main courses sent my taste buds soaring.... More

This is an Indian restaurant and whosoever likes Indian Spices, this is the place. The ambience is also well made and the food is typically Indian. The quantity served was huge so before ordering think twice before you order more. I liked this place and therefore went twice. The lassi (salted yoghurt) was very good. Must go if you are... More

My husband daughter and I had a wonderful meal here this evening. The food was so flavoursome and it's not your usual run of the mill Indian. The staff could not have been more attentive. Would recommend this restaurant for a good night out
