This was a fantastic restaurant. The food was amazing. I visited with two of my friends and we all agreed it was a different menu with lovely Indian breads that were very light and full of flavour. Main meals aside the rice was delicious with black mustard seeds giving a nice flavour and texture with I think it was lemon in one and coconut in the other rice. my main meal was lamb with ginger and other spices it was medium hot and very tasty. I will definitely be back with my partner.
