The chicken tikka is delicious and the peshwari Nan is like a hot fluffy pillow of gorgeousness. Plenty of room in the restaurant with good service from everyone who works there. The prices are reasonable for the attention to detail in the cooking. Even the drinks are priced well. Real tablecloths and napkins and proper hot facecloths when you've finished... More
