A newbie in town, we are confident enough to declare it’s a rising star among Indian restaurants. Maybe the secret of the success lays in the Calcutta born owner, Shrim Chakraborty – who knows a thing or two about good curry. The place is intimate and cosy and creates a somewhat homely vibe. “Kosha mangsho” a traditional mutton curry, is highly recommended – it might make you cry, but hopefully tears of pure delight, not a bad date.
