Really nice lamb rogan josh, perfectly cooked meat, spicy flavoursome sauce and great garlic naan to mop it all up! Friendly service, would highly recommend Utsav

I went for a dinner and had ordered Aaloo (Potato) and Paneer (Cheese) paranthas. Aaloo parantha was good while cheese was okayish. The restaurant was a bit pricey. Also, the portion of raita with the paranthas was very very small, completely un-Indian.

We went at about 9pm after the movies. Looks like a family owned business. The owner and his wife were very welcoming and attentive. Food was delicious. Especially the korma. Atmosphere was ok. Nice colourful photos of India on the walls. Very quick service.
