    This may well be too late - but I love the cucumber/gin cocktail, and if they have the donut holes for dessert, do get them! Will be interested to hear what you think of it.

      Ok..here's my take.

      Overall, pretty good. The location and atmosphere are great. I've been there before for drinks but never placed it as a food destination.

      Onion rings, Tikka chicken, rosemary naan were very good. Other mentionables were the guacamole, crab cake, and the lamb.

      Donut holes were excellent, although I didn't see you rec until today MMRuth. We ordered 2 orders of those. THe Kulfi was a very interesting and delicious combination. Recommended. Ceviche was good also.

      Things that were blah: chicken meatballs (bland and not appetizing), chocolate dessert, shrimp (overspiced), and I wasn't a fan of the tamarind margarita...I found it to be overly bitter.
