I had a takeaway and it was the best I've had in ages. I just had a curry and rice, but the curry portion was very big and it was also very good. I had the garlic chillie chicken, which was not only very, very hot but also very flavourful. I will definitely use this establishment again if I go... More

We drive a 100 mile round trip to go here with kids every 2 or 3 months. It's the freshest most interesting tasting indian food I've had worldwide. Staff decor etc is what I'd call usual indian. Food is exceptional. All meals are very different even the rice options are very different. No base packet sauces used here! We've recently... More

Two of us dined here a couple of nights ago and was very impressed. Great mixed pakora starter to share then the curries/rice/naan bread ordered were as good as we've tasted anywhere. Attentive service and nice atmosphere in a terrific little restaurant.

I have been here a few times and slways found the staff to be extremely pleasant. The food is well presented with an extensive menu that you would expect fgom an Indian restaurant. The salad with the starters i am guessing has been prepped well in advance as the lettuce had lost its crispness and lacked taste. The rest of... More

Finally, somewhere with really good Indian food!! The food here is great, I've both sat in and taken food away and it is delicious. Plenty of it too, never left hungry after a meal from the tandoori. Not just that but the service is great; quick and efficient, and the staff have a great sense of humour, all qualities not... More

This may be an okay restaurant for a sit down meal, but we were recently very disappointed with a take away meal. The Lamb Madras was very poor and the meat was not tender, so it could not have been lamb. Very disappointed as the takeaway was not cheap.

Lovely restaurant, very welcoming and the food was good quality. One of the nicest meals I've had, with some lovely touches. Value is OK, with standard restaurant prices, but portion sizes were good and everyone has clean plates at the end!

Very good food, fresh salad and herbs at reasonable price. Service was fast and friendly. Interior might be a bit simple, but the kitchen makes up for this twice.

We used this restaurant for a takeaway. The food was well prepared and there was plenty of it. All dishes we ordered were of high quality and I think the only complaint we had was being too full.
