Be careful with this place! We went there the other night for two curries, Paneer and different types of Naan (plain, garlic, and onion). While my wife felt sick a couple of hours after the visit, but was ok again on the next morning, I...More

very simple unassuming, hole in the wall place. Excellent garlic naan, and i love the plain and butter roti as well. The oven is literally right at the entrance. Curry packs a punch, love the palek paneer too. Masala tea was nice and fragrant. Only...More
