Really enjoyed my meal from here, although the service wasn't great. The guy seemed a bit grumpy that we were in there (as we were the only customers at the time), but the food made up for it.

The Peshwari naan was delicious and so was the rice, and it was a very good size portion. I had the chicken korma, and it was great, very creamy and flavoursome.

My friends went for the lunch time...more

Service was really slow, on a night where there were only 3 tables seated at any given point... but they had my favorite fizzy lemonade, and everything was really, really, really tasty. It was worth the wait - just make sure you have time and are not in a rush to head somewhere.

It's a small and good Indian restaurant located centrally in Camden. I was happy with my food and also liked the wine, but there's nothing special I remember.

If you're hungry and in that area or just want to have some Indian dish, it's a good choice!more
