Visited as a family on a Monday evening, restaurant was relatively busy, the waiters were very attentive, the food was delicious. We had starters and a main, we had popadoms as well which was too much food for us all, would recommend either a starter or popadoms, you don't need both. Will definitely return.

This is a gem of a restaurant. Everything was entirely up to expectations and standard. The service was good, the choice on the menu couldn't be faulted, the food was excellent, the toilets were scrupulously clean (so often a let down), and so on. I've passed it many times and not realised it's there, but I shall make a determined... More

Good venue, but shocking service and waiters were just clueless! Real shame as food was very tasty and not greasy or oily. Good menu with lots of choice and if you go with lots of friends and have a few beers it would be great!

I ordered King Prawn Jalfrezi and was given miniature prawn curry that was just about palatable. Asked for a thick Takadaal dish and it came watery. Won't go back.

Visited this place on a Saturday night on the recommendation of a friend. Restaurant was rammed already at 19:30 which was a good sign. Didn't have a reservation but only had to wait for around 20 minutes for a table for 3. Service was friendly but not overly attentive. Starters we had were fairly average but mains were lovely and...

Visited this place with friends and all I can say is HORRENDOUS, service was / is an absolute joke, the waiters were running around like headless chickens. Told our starter would be 20mins, it ended up being 1.40 mins and then one was wrong and two were cold. The waiter then said in regards to the incorrect starter, "try it... More

We decided to visit this restaurant again having not been for a couple of years and knew it would be busy on a saturday night, so booked well in advance for 830pm. On arrival we were told our table wasn't ready and we will have to wait for 5/10 minutes. After about 20 minutes they brought us menus so we... More
