Always the best food and service. We are always well looked after in every way! Tried a lot of the many different currys and they all have their different flavours and very well presented.

Called in for the Tuesday night banquet, however we were offered a choice of that or the Christmas menu for a couple of pound more. After perusing both we plumped for the Christmas, I had the mixed tandoori starter followed by Chicken biriyani, chips, nan and curry sauce then to top it off ice cream for dessert. No skimping on...

Huge selection to choose from. Very friendly and helpful staff. The waiter spent several minutes helping me decide what to choose as I wasn't too sure what I really wanted. In the end I had a chicken Pathia sweet and sour, Pilau rice and a plain nan. The chicken was tender and moist, the tomato based sauce spicy without blowing... More

Been away for a while and missing a good Indian. Turned up at 8pm, quite busy and a great atmosphere. The food and service service were both excellent. Won't leave it so long before we return again.

We had dinner here. Requested my curry to be made mild, but it was far too spicy. The waiter however did offer twice to replace it. The food was quite good on the whole, but fairly average for this type of restaurant on a industrial park. Staff though were charming and attentive.

We looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor before deciding to seek out this restaurant while on a weekend break nearby. It looks fairly unpretentious set in a small parade of shops. We were made to feel welcome straight away by the two waiters who were working that evening. They were chatty and attentive. It was relatively quiet being a... More

We went to the lunch time buffet on Sunday with our 2 young children. We had a lovely time as the food was varied and very tasty. It was also good value for money as our 7 year old ate for half price and our 5 year old ate for free. Very friendly staff as well. Highly recommended would definitely... More
