Food was disgusting and bland, no taste. Missing food from our order however still charged and overpriced, £35 for a meal that didn't impress. Don't recommend.

I can only recommend a visit to this restaurant and ask you disregard any rare negative reviews. We have dined here regularly since it opened and it never disappoints! Last night we were celebrating a 60th birthday and the arrival of our first grandson and Jay / his staff certainly did us proud.

Visited tonight for 1st time - starter was ok then things started to go wrong. Mixed 2 rices up then waiter took cutlery away mid meal. Ordered chilli mosalla bhuna which was so hot it was inedible. Very expensive for at best average Indian food
