Tasty curry but not cheap. Quiet Monday night meal. Plenty of staff but one couldn't understand a George accent.

After a recommendation we visited the Shish Mahal. The waiter service was very rushed and over friendly. After finishing our starters, under 2 minutes the main course arrived - too quickly. The food was good and not to expensive. So we'll give this place another go in the future.

Had another try here to see if it was possible to taste the exotic flavours of my student days. Sadly no. Staff are plentiful, and a bit obtrusive, hovering to grab your plates and move you on. Again, my starter came before we had any chance of enjoying our popadums, and my lamb desi was hot and tasteless as far... More

We visited this restaurant last December and were not sure what to order. The waiter was really helpful and honest - he advised that what we were going to order was too much for us (and then I realised it was more pricey as well) and after getting to know our preferences, suggested some dishes. The food was lovely and... More

Having tried this restaurant for dinner which was lovely, decided try lunch. Quite disappointed, spiced onions to start, no spice at all.m Main course came on white side plate, no sizzling balti dish in sight looked reheated as sauce was dried up. Biggest disappointment of all was the bill, £7. 95 pp for lunch ended up£30, only extra was 2... More

We'd been before. We came back as the main course was good and the nan was excellent. Before the pakora had been heavy: batter around a solid, chewy, creamy slightly-sweet, potato-ey core. Great if you want a belly full of ballast, but not even close to the lightly deep-fried strands of delicately flavoured onions that pakora should be. We'd heard... More
