Every dish is generous, beautifully prepared without being fussy or precious, and well-seasoned. There is a very good wine selection but the meals are delicious with a hot cup of Darjeeling tea.

What would you recommend for someone who does not like spicy foods for a dinner there?

I recommend Tandoori chicken from the oven, a side of Saag (spinach), a side of Raita (cucumber and yogurt salad), papadam (crispy thin bread), and rice. This meal is both very healthy and filling and is not at all spicy.
