Excellent tasty fresh food with great service. Chicken jalfrezi with a mixed starter washed down with 'a few' ice cold cobra's... Well looked after and left happy. Great value for money!

Absolutely fantastic!! We visited this rratsuarant last night (14/01/2017) and the service was impeccable. Service seemed personal to each customer and the food was out of this world. We called last minute for a table and they gladly fitted us in. From now on we are 100% coming here!!

Went for Sunday lunch with family and only people in the restaurant. Food took 30mins to arrive, which is fine as you think it is going to be fresh!

the food was outstanding! very good portions and the quality was amazing considering it was banquet night. Loved the king prawn butterfly, as well as the chicken nageena, that was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant because to top it off, the service was just impressive seeing as the restaurant was filled up.
