We were craving for spicy Indian food and the chef did not disappoint us. We went there both for lunch buffet which was less spicy and for dinner where they really catered to our spicy buds. We had malai kofta, biryani, saag paneer, mango and salt lassi. More

My wife and I like to make a meal of Legal's excellent starters. This time we had tuna sashimi, smoked salmon with brioche bread & steamed mussels, preceded by a margarita, accompanied by a glass of Sancerre and followed by pumpkin cheesecake & espresso. Altogether a very festive New Year's Eve dining experience. More
