Inside this trendy eatery, you’ll find a friendly staff mixed with the smell of fresh naan and curries cooking. There isn’t much seating inside, but they still offer a few chairs and tables, as well as window seating. This is more of a takeout spot, but dining in isn’t bad for a casual meal.
The menu here is simple and offers a variety of Indian rice dishes, curries and rotis.
To start your meal, you can’t go wrong with the keema pav ($8.99) which is a lightly-spiced lamb dish served in a fresh, house-made bun. The spice level of this dish is mild-medium. The crispy bun combined with the savoury lamb is a tasty combination that you won’t be able to stop eating.
The roti here is definitely the star of the show. With a number of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options to choose from, you are definitely spoiled for choice. A favourite is the chana masala roti ($11.99). It’s a perfect combination of spicy chickpeas in a tomato-based sauce, served with either white or garlic naan. The spicy sauce is the perfect pairing with the fluffy and soft naan. You just can’t go wrong.
The biryanis are also great choices here. Another popular choice is the lamb biryani ($14.99) which is served with a generous portion of jasmine rice with great flavour. After one bite, you will notice the subtle spices, which is a nice change from other biryani joints. The portions are large, so be sure to come hungry.
