A short , simple review. Delicious, authentic Indian cuisine. We had the sheek kebab, goat biriyani and kadhai chicken with garlic naan. Great spicing and the meats were cooked to perfection. Well worth the money. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is small and always busy. All dishes were delicious, but what I really enjoyed was the cheese chilli naan and the Kaju Kebab. The staff is nice, but can't give attention to all customers. Try to get there soon!

Seriously loved this restaurant! After realising we wanted a quiet night in, we ordered some take away from Sapphire - best decision ever. Both my partner and I have never experienced Indian food this good! GO EAT THIS!!
