Great food and lots of it, service is hit and miss though. You never get the same server throughout your meal, some are grumpy and look and act as if they don't want to be there. There are one or two who can't do enough for you. Good luck in getting one of the good ones

We booked a table for 6, first time we've been here and the location of the restaurant made me a little sceptical however don't let that fool you! Great kingfisher beer, very extensive menu and the food was superb! Myself and the family were very impressed and great service! If anything, the restaurant needs some maintenance but great otherwise.👍

Thought I would try the Thursday night banquet and have to say I have mixed feelings...on a good point the food was nice but the plastic packaging that we found on our food ... Well what can I say...and they had the cheek to imply it couldn't have come from their kitchen....and I was billed £34.25 for the privilege somewhat... More

We came for the £10.50 Sunday buffet, it was delicious and good value. I tried things I wouldn't usually order which were delicious. For under 10s it's only £5, bargain. The staff were so polite and couldn't do enough for you. We will definitely be returning! I really hope this place does well.

I went with a number of friends to try out the buffet at the Purple Mango. We have eaten there before and though the food is not the best locally, the location makes it convenient for some in the group. We all went for the buffet meal and many were disappointed with the temperature, taste or quality of the food.... More

Went on a Monday night, so was surprised to see quite a few other diners, obviously a good sign. This place is far off the beaten track, within a housing estate, which makes it even more incredible that it's of such high quality. My mother always rated a restaurant by the quality of it's toilets. She'd love this place! Lovely... More

Visited here for a takeaway purely because another Indian in town has randomly closed. Very impressed for a first visit. Staff were welcoming and polite, perhaps a little too polite and welcoming if that's possible. Food arrived within fifteen minutes, we were offered a drink while we waited. The food was faultless. Hot, tasty and good sized portions. We'll certainly... More

Loved the food, good service and great atmosphere. I really enjoyed the chicken tikka and the Balti Jalfreizi. Amazing Naan bread. Defo will be going back!
