Meal was loaded with salt. Spent over $100.00 for a meal that was almost unedible. I don’t think that this restaurant will be revisited.

Dropped in for a late lunch. We were the only customers in the restaurant . I ordered one of their combinations which included lamb curry and butter chicken. Also asked for medium heat. I enjoy spicy food but not at the expense of flavour. I could not tell the difference between the lamb and the chicken except through texture. There was only heat and NO flavour.

I had issues with their billing. I always like to enter a $ amount for the tip because I don't want to tip on the taxes included in the total. The machine did not allow me to enter an amount even though I pressed the $ amount and not the % amount. The waiter kept saying it was ok! i saw the receipt - $15 tip - that was about 25%. I complained and was offered a refund which I accepted and then we did it over again and this time I was able to put in the $ amount for the tip.

A few days later I checked my statement on line and found 2 postings for the lunch and no refund posting for the first transaction. I called and was told that it would take about a week for it to go through the bank. That is not true -- the transactions go through immediately. I checked my statement again the next day and saw that they did not post the refund but removed the first transaction. I called my credit company and explained the situation and they placed a note on my file in case they repost the first transaction.

I don't know if that was a deliberate situation or some confusion. Nevertheless, I will not be returning.

The Goa Chicken curry and the chicken Marsala were excellent The naan bread was best I have had. Basmati rice was perfectly cooked. We were there for lunch and will try supper very soon. Nice experience by owners and staff who know their business.
