    Nalli Vindaloo - Tender lamb shank and very good curry sauce. The dish is big, and not as spicy as they claim it to be.

    The butter chicken here reminds me of the best north Indian restaurants I used to eat at while growing up in Mumbai. Superb!

    Naan is soft and melts in the mouth. Butter chicken deserves the rave reviews. Rogan josh gravy had a balanced taste, not too spicy and not too meaty but the lamb pieces were a tad too big.

    Pooja · February 10, 2014

    Fava bean tikki is the best!
