We had a very nice meal at this restaurant and the service was also good. Very busy and a good atmosphere.

Had lunch here today. Food was delicious, and service was very warm and friendly. Speaking with the owner, it’s clear that he has a big heart, and wants to provide excellent food for his customers. He’s succeeding.

The outside of the restaurant does not do this place justice. The staff were very nice and constantly bringing us additional things to try. The tikka poppadoms are a must! Make sure if you don't like things too spicy to ask for the curry to...More

I was disappointed with the service from our waiter. He seemed in a rush to get us out of the restaurant (even if there were another 10 people in the restaurant). We had been here before and received a discount for repeat business, but when...More
