Absolutely delicious!! The flavor is incredible. I loved the northern Indian vegetable curry. Staff are friendly and the vibe is cool.


Very delicious Indian food. The butter chicken is rather sweet but there are also more spicy dishes available. Will definitely come back again.
Reservation is recommended, even for two people.


My partner and I have been here twice now and it is amazing! The service is great, the staff are really friendly, and the atmosphere is really pleasant. But most of all the food is 10/10. While I don't know what most of it is in English, their cheesy nan is to die for. It's chewy and savoury and delicious. Not to say that their curry isn't the star of the show, just all their dishes I've tried so far are amazingly flavourful. I would recommend for those who don't speak Japanese to look up their menu beforehand online. Happy eating!
