Excellent. The food was fantastic. Galoti Lamb to start and Chicken Xakuthi and Chettinad for mains. Top quality Indian food from an ex-Taj hotels chef. Service was also great, the waitress was pleasant, helpful and jolly. The chef came out to chat after the meal and was a lovely chap. Been here twice now, both times fantastic. Strongly recommended (and, to be clear, I have no connection to the restaurant, just a happy customer)

Excellent traditional food, will certainly visit again when in York. Friendly and efficient staff will make any dish you fancy that's not already on the menu. Kids enjoyed it too.
