Food is average, nothing special, service very slow despite the restaurant being empty, there are not many options hence no choice! The waiter don't even look around or ask if you need anything extra . Not my piece of cake !

We started with vegetable samosas and than with a mushroom curry and a fish curry. Tasteful curries and definitely not too spicy. Our waiter was very friendly. Good place to go if you want something else

Curry was average. We ordered the butter chicken and chicken tikka masala. Both came with only about 5 chicken cubes and way too much sauce. Really was a bit of a let down.

We tried other Indian restaurant in town but this one has the best variety (also for vegetarians!) and the taste is delicious...not full of msg. I highly recommend this place also for the cost of the food which is very reasonable.
