Amazing food and extremely helpful and polite staff. Great atmosphere, very chilled and relaxed. Like the NJ new restaurant, very intimate. Also lots of new dishes on the menu... Try the lamb shanks! Just go and find out for yourself! 😋👍🍷

Food was poor,both me & my partner experienced stomach problems that very night & the following day.I expect to pay a service charge in london but not in a below average indian restaurant in frimley! It"s hardly surprising there closing half of the restaurant down.

Excellent meal with delicious food and good service. excellent value. interesting menu. We were travelling from Somerset to Gatwick and decided to stop off in Frimley rather than a motorway service station and had a really good memorable meal. would go back
