Fresh, all mad on the premises (paneer and all desserts included). Friendly folks.
The food was delectable with luscious depth of flavour and complex spices. The unassuming physical setting (modern fluorescent, flat screen tv with East Indian music videos, the stools and bar counter) suggest either a poor experience or a hidden gem. Your olfactory senses give you a hint the moment you enter. It was wonderful - goat curry, paneer with vegetables and amazing ras malai.
Let's hope that when they open the buffet next door, and do pizza (???!!!), they don't "lose it".

The sandwiches here are decent.... enough to want to have one again. On the other hand, the salads were SOooo bad... The Feys & Hobbs scone was way overpriced (even with a few pieces of fig in it) for a dry, small nugget. The soup was dull, as though made with Campbell's as a base.
Silk Road teas are overrated (sorry folks, but they are a little boring - even for loose tea). Perhaps, they could use more tea in each serving. No tea pots!
Espresso drinks are very good.
Staff do not seem to be savvy.

I was please by the reception and prompt service here. However, the "seafood" in the soup was artificial crab. If this had been noted on the menu, I would have passed.
Kudos for the broth and heat. Unfortunately, the large amount of noodles overwhelmed the skimpy serving of protein in this dish.
