I mus sat, this is the best Asian restaurant in UK I have visited so far. Real authentic and tasty food. The chef knows his job as well as his customers very well.

Fresh food, polite and considerate wait staff, the place absolutely hums. The dishes are authentic tasty and cooked on the day to meet the, obviously considerable, demand. No anglicised nonsense here just very goid, authentic, high quality foid.

The food & service is horrendous. If you order karahi gosht be prepared for a pint of oil!! The biriyani was tasteless and meatless bones.

They do a good lamb biryani and mango lassi. Always very busy and do find it consoling that food is more likely to be fresh. Enjoyed all my meals here and is always an A lister on my Curry night list. They even have a play area for the kids.

Great food. But no alcohol. Though it's worth it. Everything was very tasty and will definitely be going back.

Best grill. Best chicken methi. Best breads. Lot's of choice. Very reasonably priced. Bustling with atmosphere. Go here on a regular basis. What are you waiting for?
