Friendly, reasonable portions, average price. Run by a nice Indian family who do no use MSG in their cooking. Also good for vegetarians. Worth a tr.

The dishes here are cooked by the mother while her three daughters work the floor. We enjoyed our meal so much we returned again. It's an unassuming little spot but every dish we ordered was delicious. Try and sit outside it's so pleasant and you feel as if you are right in the middle of things.

We tried most of the restaurants in trip advisor, but this has to be the best. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is awesome. We were here for a week and visited twice, it was never disappointing and very good value. This place is highly recommended.

The popular restaurant next door was closed so they were very busy which meant a long wait for food. Food was good when it arrived and beers cold.
