    Try prawns koliwada and lamb biryani!!
  • Abhishek S.
    The lamb biryani is great! Authentic spice mix and subtle hotness. Also go for prawns koliwada.

    To avoid queuing arrive before 5pm on a weekday. And the weekend, well it's pretty inevitable!

    Don't worry if you are in an hour long queue for this place. That's a usual peaktime wait for dinner. The staff are nice & will hand out free chai tea & spicy crackers, or put heaters on in the winter

    No bookings so you'll probably have to queue, as it's really popular. Worth it for the lamb chops, that are truly excellent. The birianis are also fantastic. Don't miss the Eton mess dessert.

    Disappointing experience: food too salty, portion minuscule, hall noisy and dark. Service was okay. Hipster style ambiance was cool, though, and chai tea was good, but does not make up for the wait.

    We didn't wait too long 4 a table. I was surprised they didn't have chicken tikka masala on the menu, so i tried the chicken ruby which wasn't that bad. The food was good but it was too crowdy for me.

    Get a cappuccino to start -- it's topped with a slight shake of cocoa that melts as you drink it -- then follow with chicken ruby with roti, the black daal, and anything else that strikes your fancy.
