This place needs improvement if they want to compete with Indian and/or other restaurants in peninsula. Taste of the food was below average. Curries were oily and heavy. However the service was ok (probably that's because there weren't many on that day). Hope management will make some changes to improve the quality of the food. All the best.

The restaurant counter is on back side so it took time before we could figure that out. We settled down quickly and gave our order. I realised it later that we were the... More

This place is known for Indians (locals and visitors) that like real Indian foods (I,e: too much Indian spices without any consideration for people with sensitive taste to less spicy food.

At that time, I wrote that the food was good and you needed to book ahead as it gets very busy at the weekends. Sadly, the situation has changed. I visited on a Friday, when I expected that I would have to... More
