Used to be our regular but under new management and the takeaways were awful, we didn’t finish them. Overcooked, over salted, small portions, tiny Naan bread. Not a patch on what it used to be. Maybe struck the chef on a bad day given the other reviews but not chancing it again.
Eight of us went on a discounted deal voucher dinner last Saturday during Easter break. This newly opened restaurant has been very decently refurbished.
Parking at the back is bit limited though.
Service was excellent with all care and sincerity and food was pretty authentic I must say. Certainly not one of those run of the mill Indian dishes. The Chef has taken great care to create unique main Indian dishes.
BYO with no corkage!
Matching crockeries and cutlery adds to the dining pleasure, Fine dining by any moderate standards. Certainly recommended to try and judge for yourself. Good luck to their sincere efforts.
The food here is tremendous, and I think they’ve done a really great job with the refurbishment.
I came here for lunch on my day off on Monday, and treated myself to a glass of wine along with the “Kashmiri Deghi Subz”.
This dish had classic mixed (but fresh) veges in a vegetarian “Yakhni and Kashmiri red chilli masala”, and the flavours were utterly delicious.
The waitress was very helpful opening a bottle of Allan Scott Reisling for me to have some by-the-glass, which wasn’t on the wine list yet (had just been added), and she got the Indian chef out to explain the dishes to me, and he recommended the naan bread with the Deghi dish.
They also gave me some very yummy snacks while I was waiting, to dip into a chilli, cucumber, spicy yoghurt dip. MmMmm.
I came to this building a couple of years ago, and the place was really run down, so it was great to see the space really opened up to let in the light right through the restaurant. I sat at the seat in the corner window so I could watch the hustle and bustle of the intersection.
Parking around the back made it easy.
I definitely recommend this place, and will be back with friends for sure…
