A must visit to Indian cuisine on the island. Sauces very well spiced.We had Beef Kadai so good, the Korma Lamb thumbs up biryani rice and Keema Pilao with garlic naan bread. Service impeccable. We will visit again shortly.

I believe I eat from here way too much but so far it hasn't affected my diet ;) Extremely good food and good service, both ordering and eating in. Only reason I took one dar from service is since the food takes a little long to cook (but then again all good food does)

Highly recommended by a friend but everyone was underwhelmed to be honest. Service was slow, took an hour for main course to arrive. I knew I should've stayed at the hotel that night and raided the mini bar

My 90 year old grandmother could serve quicker ! When food did turn up it was awful. Chicken tikka masala ??? Come on. Tikka chicken pieces in... More
