Only the Best

Fresh Ingredients, Tasty Meals

Chicken Tikka Masala

We begin by roasting our marinated chicken in a traditional tandoor oven before tossing it into our special smoky spiced curry. This gives the dish an unforgettably amazing taste that makes it one of India’s most favorable dishes.

Rava Dosa

Made out of semolina, and created like a crepe on a flat griddle, this Indian flatbread takes patience and time to perfect. It is typically served for breakfast or brunch but can be enjoyed at any hour of the day.

Aloo Gobi

One of the many vegetarian dishes we offer is Aloo Gabi, a traditional potato, cauliflower and Indian spiced curry. Nicely complimented by roti and homemade pickles.

Lemon Fried Chicken

Its an amazing tangy appetizer. Goes very well with cold beer. Flavoured with curry leaves and south Indian whole spices blended and deep fried.

King Prawn Masala

Great flavors where the king prawns are cooked in this very tasty tomato spiced gravy. A very popular coastal dish in India.

Indian Fish Tacos

Our fusion version of tacos great appetizer. It has fried snapper with Indian salsa avocado and greens with feta cheese.
