The previous reviews that mention service being poor are correct. However, the food makes up for it. The chicken tikka masala was the best I've ever had and this is my go to dish. Everything else we had, jasmine rice, naan, a lamb dish, were also excellent as were the Old Fashioneds. Do make sure you make reservations though, they're... More

Food is excellently presented and the Nan bread is delicious! We had the Prawns & Calamari to start and chicken Tikka Masala for main... More

We had a booking for the restaurant and arrived early so sat at the bar for a drink. The cocktails we had were fab. Next thing the manager started setting places for food on the bar.... and we pointed out that we had a booking. His attitude was terrible. But our food more than made up for that! Really good...

We tried the early bird here before Christmas and it was lovely! The service was perfect – friendly & not too intrusive – and the atmosphere was lovely! Both wine and food were absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend and return.

My family and I had dinner here on New Years Day. The six of us had a beautiful meal. The place was very busy but the service was great. I would definitely recommend it.

I was completely in shock by how our party was treated the other night. It was a long awaited night out with my childhood friends but sadly tarnished by how we were treated. It has to be said that the food was lovely and our table servers very attentive but we ran over the time allotted for our table and... More
