I enjoyed an exquisite dish from the North of India I never saw before on any menu. Friendly staff and tasteful decoration did the rest.

So my partner and I went to India Today to have a dinner experience during our trip. The staff was very welcome and polite. The food was just fantastic.... More

Enjoyed lunch here the other day in a group of 8. The service was good. The food was fantastic. It was the best Indian I have had in a long time. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go back.
