“Tasty curries. I’m a big fan of indian vegetarian dishes. Just went there to buy a biriyani but the curries were looks amazing so i choose okra curry. Taste of that curry was amazing. Good customer service as well. Definitely comeback for more vegetarian curries.”

“Best Biryani in town. Must try Biryani. Genuinely high-quality ingredients. No food colouring used to achieve vibrance but every mouthful is just a perfect harmony of taste flavour and aromas.”
