Located next to the Police Station. The interior is rather dark, yet feels welcoming and cosy, with large drapes separating the tables. The menu is electronic on tablets. After taking some time to place our order and help from the friendly staff, we placed our...More

Had a very enjoyable meal, not as expensive as I thought it may be before entering. Started with poppadoms, crispy and dry as I like them. Lime Pickle has a nice kick. Then had Paneer Tikka, paneer was a little soft but mixed with nice...More
