Starting to develop into a chain (see below); this might well turn out to be the curry equivalent of Wagamama. An Indian brasserie, sums up the general atmosphere and aims.
You can snack cheaply on the likes of 'Sev Puris' and 'Masala Burgers'. Have a one-course meal, such as 'Chicken Madras Noodles' or be bolder and have a full three course meal.
Popular mains include ' Lamb Vindaloo'; 'Prawn Malai' and various Thalis (probably their most popular item).
There have been recent complaints about the quality of some of the raw ingredients used - the chicken in particular. But all in all, a fun place to eat.
They have other branches around London.
