We are here our first night in Shangri-la and came back the second night. We enjoyed the chicken curry, chicken jalfrezi, fried rice and the cucumber salad was amazing, a must have!

Tara helped us with our order and we had the best pakoras ever. Above all, the eggplant mousse was amazing. Comfortable, tasty, clean with a great evening view of the changing light show on the temple. We went twice for dinner.
