    Unfortunately their computer was down so my booking was not recorded and the $20 discount from The Fork was not used. The food was delicious but the service was very slow.

    Very friendly service and quite possibly the best prepared tandoori lamb I have ever tasted. Superb!

    Service was nice. Two women were helpful and eager to please. The atmosphere could be worked on - just some low music would help. The food was good. The bathrooms need a good clean though. I always worry when the bathrooms are dirty, what does the kitchen look like?

    Absolutely delicious food. Prompt and pleasant service. With tasty flavours and right amount of heat, Paneer65 biryani was the winner (its hot!) . Will be back :)

    Yummy food indeed. We enjoyed the meal and are impressed with the menu on offer. We came across a lot of catering take away. It surely is a good sign!

    After reading reviews online I thought of trying it. First of all Okhra was overcooked and was not chewable. It was like eating raw meat. Naan bread was burnt. The highlight of the night was Biryani which was awsome.
