I used to visit this place with my friends all the time. My recent visit left me very disappointed. The lamb chops were not cooked properly and food was very spicy even though we asked for it to be mild.

We chose bbq platter some lamb chops and chicken tikka masala. Chicken tikka masala was ok but the rest was excellent. For dessert we ordered matka kulfi which was excellent. Definitely worth another visit.
