We just finished a delicious meal with excellent cocktails & superlative service marred only by an 18” long black hair in the basmati rice..... could have been worse. They did apologize...... The shrimp curry however was very good...

Visited this place for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed an authentic Indian meal of Butter Lamb and Garlic Naan. I definitely recommend checking these guys out if you need a fix on some really good Indian cuisine!
