This was my first visit to the new location which is located on Wellesley at Younge. I was expecting a lot and instead we got a very inconsistent meal. Unlike some indian places - things are intensely spiced so that each spice's flavour is apparent.

The server was very formal but the actual service failed to match his demeanor. The plating was very nice. The music sounded like muzak version of christmas songs - so irritating that we got them to turn it off.

Pappadams and pekoras -the pekoras were good but the pappadams were actually soft instead of crunchy, nice presentation.
Mango Lassi - Very sweet and a lurid orange but good

Butter Chicken - Tomato based, lots of ginger very intense flavour, chicken on the bone, disappointed those expecting a milder creamier flavour
Tandoori Lambchops - Okay, but the menu promised 4 and we got 3.
Chef's special shrimp - so hot (spicy) that there was little flavour.
Chick Pea dish - very good.
Vegetable Biryani - not good, the meat one is much better.
Apricot Chicken - Exellent.

Rice Pudding- Rosewater flavoured, good.
Chai - good.
