This is a 2nd floor hole in the wall. Not much on decor and the service was slow. A perfect place to really relax with friends and very tasty food in the big city. I guess if you want bells and whistles, this wouldn't be for you. Down to Earth and easy.more

Went here for dinner. This restaurant defines the "no frills" genre of dining. That said, the prices are great, the staff are friendly, and you can bring your own booze. And the food is quite good.

At first the portions seemed small but they were rich, tasty and filling. I had the chicken curry and my lady friend enjoyed the prawn curry. We also got naan and rice and an order of curried...more
