Helpful staff, attentive and nice. Food came quickly and was hot. Starters came within five minutes of placing the order. Aloo Ghobi was very delicious with garlic naan. Chai tea was unfortunately a bit ›boring‹. Might be helpful to get a reservation after 5pm.

Continues to offer the best Indian meals I’ve had outside of India and UK — not surprising given that the owner’s heritage includes the Delhi Bukhara. Also courteous service, reasonable pricing, good acoustics and no hustling/hurrying of diners.
