We are from California and we love Indian food. We stumbled across this beautiful location and were surprised on how elegant the ambience was.
We've had a lot of Indian food from a lot of different places all over the world and this was by far was the BEST that we have ever had. Service was great, staff was friendly. Highly recommended. more
Very good, excellent service, and a little bit off of the beaten path so you won't necessarily need a reservation in advance. Have good dishes in all ranges of spice. Chef's Selection menu items are delicious and authentic. more
Not knock-your-socks off, but good. The food was brought out a little cold for my taste and they forgot a few of our dishes, but the service is very friendly.
This location is also less than five minutes from the Wombat Hostel, if you don't feel like walking all the way to Brick Lane for Indian. more
Small little place with a lot of servers..but it was really good food. Family owned restaurant. more
