  • 5 star review  By far the best Indian restaurant I have been to in years. First of all - impeccable service. From the moment he took our reservation, Naveen was a delight. He also beautifully explained the menu to us, even though from first glance we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted - one of everything. We highly recommend the Inka Special Gobi 65 and the Prawn Cutlets to start with. Finishing off with a divine Masala Tea is a must. I can’t wait to return to Inka and have already recommended this place to friends. Thank you so much and see you soon!
