Thoughts:

Mango lassi – very thick with a subtle hint of mango = Not bad

Pakoras –  hot crispy batter that contained lots of spices. I preferred the cauliflower fritters over the spinach ones as the spinach fritters were simply batter = Not bad

Paneer Pakora – crispy on the outside, soft cottage cheese on the inside = Not bad

Beef Madras – spicy beef curry that was cooked with capsicum, coconut milk and a touch of vindaloo = Good

Baingan Ka Bharta – tasty eggplant curry that was cooked with onions, tomatoes and an abundance of peas = Good

Chicken Butter Masala – chicken cooked in a tandoor oven that is simmered in a sweet tomato sauce and is finished with butter, cream and cashew nuts = Good

Masala Kulcha – there was hardly anything stuffed into this naan bread except for a paper thin scraping of potato. However the naan bread itself was yummy = Not bad

Garlic Naan bread – tantalising naan that had been brushed with crushed garlic = Good

Overall:

Although this place may look ordinary from the outside (plain red brick building that looks like a house),  it certainly serves up some tasty North Indian and Tandoori cuisine. Keep in mind that the level of spiciness of the food is mild unless you specify that you want it medium or hot. Although the service is friendly, it can sometimes be a bit slow depending on how busy they are at the time. Note that this place is in the Entertainment Book.
