I chose this restaurant specifically for its good food, but there is an incredibly limited menu on here. I ordered 2 biriyanis - one prawn, one chicken - they both arrived without the sauce/vegetable curry! A very disappointing DRY dinner
Friday 02 February 2024
Ordered just after 1830. Said would be delivered around 1910. Called at 2000 and told it would be 10 minutes. Food arrived after 2020. As a result was cold. Had to reheat it but that made the fish dry.

This would not be my first choice in ordering Indian food again. Did not enjoy the Okra and the Tamarind Rice. I did like the onion baji, but even chicken biriyani I had better from other restaurant around Hemel. Value for money: 6 out of 10.
