The Indian good you get here is great. The taste is authentic and tasty. The only thing that is a little bit a minus point is the price which is a little high

The food here is very good, and the price is very reasonable. But beware if they offer any free samples. You will be charged a hefty price for them! Left a bad taste in my mouth and won't return.

greetings, thank you for your question, I would say it is about 45 minutes, as the restaurant is in the centre, and bearing in mind the traffic.
