I ordered a lamb dish and a chicken dish. GET THE $7 naan combo bread. It is top shelf food and I was blown away by the flavours and quality. Worth every penny. Street food prices, 5 star quality. If you like Indian food, this...More

I used to frequent this restaurant a lot. Unfortunately, they don’t always deliver- if they are busy. Don’t waste your time on the website

We live near the restaurant and typically order-in one or twice every month. Quality is always good and their butter chicken, chicken vindaloo, and naan bread are particularly exceptional. Prior to finding this restaurant we tried about 10 different Indian restaurants around the city and...More

This family restaurant presents the best of Indian food. The dishes are prepared in metal pots which keep your food hot throughout your entire meal. Their traditional East Indian flavours are mouth watering and the service is very good.

The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous
mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The
blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic
collection of entertainment, from theatres and
cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch
souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is
one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and
