Went here as it was recommended by a friend and was really disappointed. Atmosphere was great, staff good, but the food let it down. It arrived looking fantastic but had no flavour if I had been blindfolded I would not have been able to distinguish my meal from my husbands sadly will not be returning.

The chicken tikka is delicious and the peshwari Nan is like a hot fluffy pillow of gorgeousness. Plenty of room in the restaurant with good service from everyone who works there. The prices are reasonable for the attention to detail in the cooking. Even the drinks are priced well. Real tablecloths and napkins and proper hot facecloths when you've finished... More
