    Such an awesome dine in experience with so beautiful ambience. Music just on point. Food, OMG. Super delicious and that signature chocolate cocktail drink is a must try. Their pav bhaji burger buns are not to miss kind of food.

    The food was amazing, the vibe was amazing, the taste was too good and the presentation next level. We tried quite a few signature dishes and couldn’t fault them. They had outdoor seating as well so that pet owners don’t feel disadvantaged to try the amazing dishes that this restaurant has.

    I went to this restaurant for my wife’s birthday celebration and i was utterly disappointed by the experience. The food was below average , the service was below average leaving a very sour taste. Starting with the food order, i was told after i ordered (abt 5 mins or so)that 40% of the items that i have ordered aren’t available … the entrees were so basic and lacked taste.. Raita on the menu said comes with shreds of corriander , carrots & cucumber… when it arrived, it looked like two cups of milk with some carrots thrown in it … its one thing serving bad food, its another when you serve guests this way, it felt very disrespectful and cheated.. the mains were the same , no texture or taste … only thing good on the menu was the mango lassi .. the management of this restaurant should take this feedback positively and better themselves.. not all customers would give constructive feedback…

    Delivering bronze at gold prices. Customer service needs to be lifted significantly.

    What a great new restaurant in our neighbourhood! The food was really good - we loved all of the entrees and mains we ordered. It was really busy in the middle of the week so while the service was excellent it was a little slow. A few other diners were in a hurry but I hope you won’t let that discourage you as it is a wonderful new place!
