I've always enjoyed having their their Naan... perfectly fluffy and soft, best to be served with their rich and flavorful curries. Their Chicken Tikka Masala was good but this time, we had the Kadai Chicken... another spicy curry variant. But the sauce was equally rich and creamy. Others were equally good except Malai Khofta- deep fried Potato balls drenched in a peculiarly sweet, creamy and cheesy concoction. Not that it was bad but it was an acquired taste that many would not be able to get used to.
