My wife and I enjoyed the food & atmosphere here one night in Jan 2012. Meal was well prepared and waiter/chef welcomed us with a refreshingly enthusiastic banter. Samosas were underwhelming but the mains were great. Onion rings are very nice, and the steak was delicious once we received an adequately rare one. Owner offered to fire the cook after the first one was seriously overcooked, but we didn't consider that to be necessary. Salad accompanying the steak was somewhat uninspired (iceberg lettuce) but really, what else are you going to hope for in January in Fredericton?
Hot lamb curry was fab, but would have been nicer if the accompanying roti was whole and not semi-saturated the curry sauce already. It was cut into thin strips that made it difficult to effectively wrap around the delicious curry. The front of the menu contains a list of accolades from famous patrons as long as your arm, so they are obviously doing something right.
My biggest qualm: Where's the goat? Where's the Oxtail? Otherwise, the menu is nicely varied without being overwhelming. Prices were on the high end; $75 for two mains, two drinks and a single, shared appetizer. In future, would skip the samosas and opt for the onion ring app instead. Coffee (Blue Mountain coffee from Jamaica) was quite good. Home made ice cream (gratis, on account of the steak error) was quite superb, with nice chunks of mango in it. Mango smoothie could have been smoother - the straw repeatedly clogged up with chunks of ice whilst sipping at it.
We were also saved from a nasty snowstorm by following the hosts' advice to soldier on to Nova Scotia instead of being trapped in the NB, so that was good.
