Good pakistanian dishes. Everything we ate was really tasty. The restaurant is rather small and in my opinion not that cozy as a dinner spot. For sure when want to eat something tasty fast.

I grew up in England, & since had curries all around the globe. It surprised me, but this place is right up there. My Vindaloo was as tasty as any I've ever had.

Not clear but long in summer, I think. Business was well under way when we got there and didn't look like ending after we left. I believe I recall a mention of lunch too. I imagine that hours might change in the winter - I... More
