    The central heating was not working (might be a one-off) and they didn't provision enough heaters to offset that. The server tried to upsell us on the cocktail (i.e., choosing a more premium vodka as compared to what comes with the cocktail) by just asking what vodka we'd want as if it's a choice with the cocktail without clearly outlining it would be an extra charge. The music was quite loud for a restaurant that's marketed as fine dining. While the food had good flavor, these other aspects ruined the overall experience for us.

    I had such a great birthday dinner. Mo was a great server and so attentive even with my large party. The restaurant was so accommodating for dietary restrictions and modifications as well. Highly recommend for special occasions or for a casual night for the ambience and visually appealing restaurant that doesn’t skimp on the quality of their food despite how busy it gets.

    The service was excellent, the servers go out of their way to ensure you have an amazing dining experience. We loved the appetizers, lamb Birria tacos were great, aloo tiki sliders were so flavourful, palak chaat was amazing. The brunch menu was okay, we got the masala egg benny and Chile bhature, which were good but not phenomenal. Overall, it was a good experience, I would go back for the apps, creative drinks, and awesome service. Forgot to mention-we also received complimentary dahi puchka-which was a nice touch to begin the meal.

    The ambience was nice! The service was good too but a bit rushed. I felt the food was okayish! We ordered Golgappa’s - to be honest I didn’t like it at all! The other appetizer was kali Miri soya chaap which was not bad. Main course was Amritsar Kulcha- it was too oily/buttery because of which the only taste I could pick up on was of butter! The desert Gulab jamun with rabri was ok (Gulab jamun was too sweet but rabri was ten on ten) Overall it was ok!

    Horrible experience! DO NOT dine in after 10pm. Service was great till 11pm and then suddenly went downhill, to a point where it got confrontational, due to lack of listening/attention paid by staff. Headed to Barkat for a great evening, only to be dampened in the end!

    the food is absolutely delicious, but the size of the restaurant is very small so all the tables are squeezed tightly together and they seemed to be quite understaffed, which naturally resulted in poor service.

    Ordered butter chicken spiced to Indian palette. Instead got something with only 2 flavors - spice and sour. I felt there's been a mistake and asked the server who took the dish in the kitchen and returned with the same dish confirming it was butter chicken, indeed - a really pathetic, unrecognizable version, in my opinion. Upon complaining, was offered an orange juice just so we could swallow the dam thing down our throats. When we were ready to pay the bill for this disgusting food, the chef and owner came enquiring about our experience and full knowing that we are done with the dinner, offered a fresh serving of butter chicken without the extra spice - how timely!? This offer should have been made while we were having our dinner not post it. On a seperate note, despite making a reservation we were made to wait over 25 mins while they were taking walk ins as well - why wouldnt you just keep a table reseved closer to the reservation time, shows how poorly managed the place is. Overall, very underwhelmed by the experience and wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

    A refreshing take on Indian cuisine. Everything was delicious! I didn't give it five stars because the mains were smaller portions than anticipated.
