    The food here is fantastic. The Fish Moilee, the Aloo Gobi and the garlic naan are all amazing. A little more expensive than 6th St but worth it.

    Best saag paneer I've had, and if you like it spicy just ask for fresh chillies. The raita was also thick and super tasty.

    While it is definitely delicious don't order saag paneer when you are with a group of friends post beer heavy football match. They will make fun of you for being a veggie even if you are a carnivore.

    For gluten-free options, try: the pakoras, (which are friend in chickpea batter), and the balti, or the meat sizzler (lamb chop, chicken, and shammi kebabs).

    If you have a strong constitution, try the Phaal – an excruciatingly hot curry. Otherwise, the Chicken Tikka Masala is a safe bet, paired with Sesame Naan.
