Honest opinion, worst food I have had in a long time. Dumplings were dry and hard and tandoori shrimp only tasted of the foul smelling sauce. Huge portions. Ordered through Foodora.

I'm a regular lunch diner here. This restaurant belongs to same group as restaurant Himshikhar so the food is similar and excellent in both places, even I prefer Himshikhar a little better. As noticed, could be very crowded during lunch but food is worth waiting....More
