This restaurant specialises in North Indian cuisine. The ambience and design of this restaurant is amazing. The highlight is the marble fountain in the centre of the restaurant. The food was delicious and the quantity of food so generous that we struggled to eat it all. The service was outstanding. My wife and I would like to thank Aby and... More

The manager remembered us from our last visit in April which I thought was amazing customer care. The waiters are always professional and we didn't think twice when... More
