I only read about this place thought Andy Hayler’s blog despite the fact it is is pretty near one of my main stomping grounds. This was good modern Indian food but like Kricket I found the spicing to be a little tame. Don’t get me wrong though I would go back, although I would like to make the effort to go back to Talli Joe first, despite the fact that is right the middle of tourist land.

Also, they warned us it was busy but a 45 min wait between starters and mains was still very frustrating! Maybe don’t visit on a Saturday night…

This is a pretty cool place with, the now must have, counter seating. Everything was pretty tasty and cooked very well; however, I felt that it was a bit under spiced (well for my tastes anyway).
