First of all in the uk I live for indian curries and in the last 4 years away from home this is the best I have come across by far. We ended up over filling ourselves as we couldn't stop. It was very busy and we still got great service as well as the staff being friendly. I admit I... More

The restaurant itself seemed ok when we first entered and sat down. Upon closer inspection the floor was littered with rice and bits of naan bread. The wait staff were well intentioned but not always helpful. We ordered a dahl dish which was tasteless, but the chicken madras was quite tasty. We were overcharged an extra serving of rice which...

Delicious food, generous portions at affordable prices. Wide range of beers and wines available. Beautiful lake views. Very friendly and accommodating staff. They were closing early so we said we'd have take out from them but they insisted we stay and relax and enjoy our meal which is just what we did!

We had to wait over half an hour between courses (and our third course was a dessert consisting of an ice cream sundae). Crockery was grubby and we were not issued cutlery for our second course (main). We booked in advance online and there were discrepancies between what we thought we had booked for and what we actually served. We... More
