Our excellent server explained the menu, recommend dishes, and was very knowledgeable. One of our party was vegan, and the chef was very happy to alter dishes.

We decided to share a few curries, opting for potato bhuna, South Indian garlic chilli chicken and, our highlight of the night, Goan fish curry. Packed with traditional flavours and perfectly blended spices, it’s clear the chef knows their way around the kitchen. We mopped up every last bite with fluffy chapati and spoonfuls of rice.
We sat on the mezzanine level, away from the hustle and bustle – a fabulous spot for some people-watching!
