We have eaten here a number of times and it has been great every time. The kebabs are great and so are the samosas, as well as the pumpkin appetizers. Delicious!

This place is wonderful. We had the dinner for two and substituted lamb for the chicken. Stunning food, very generous portions, friendly courteous service, pretty setting and great value for money. We'll visit this place every time we go to Charlottesville. Don't miss it!
