Red hued restaurant setting prompt service ,good variety of indian cuisine. Fresh papad were served with tamarind and red chilli chutney. Steel glasses should be replaced by glass or disposable glasses . Generally a neat and clean restaurant.

Pleasant ambience, friendly service. The cooking is of good quality, moderately spiced (some guests might prefer spicier food) and very reasonably priced. Well recommended.

I'm hesitant to write a positive review of this Indian restaurant because it's getting very hard to find a seat most of the time. But it's unkind not to share. We've been going there for five years and during that time it's been "discovered" by...More
