Great service, fantastic new tastes. Quite small portions in street food so you can stay hungry.

Fabulous service and brilliant street food menu. The cocktail was delicious and worth every penny for a late night treat. Lovely complimentary scarf for the ladies too!

Been here many times before. We were a party of 8 celebrating my birthday on Saturday 30th November. We have always had different meals every time we have visited and have never been disappointed by the excellent quality of the food and the service. This trip was no exception, fabulous, faultless food and excellent wine. If you want to eat top quality Indian food that is different to anything that you will find on the high street then make your way to Berkley Square
