Fabulous food that won't disappoint. The Lamb shank Vindaloo is a signature dish, not to be missed! Excellent starters too: Tiger shrimp in creamy Saffron is highly recommended. A great place for fine dining.

Probably my favourite Indian restaurant. There is so much flavour to the curries and the starters are pretty special too (try the spicy lamb 'Crusted Boti'). I've taken a few friends here too and they all agree that it's sublime.

Fantastic food, if we were local we would become regulars. Service was very friendly and were always keen to ensure everything was to our liking. Not your usual everyday menu but this added to the experience.
