Judging by the mixed reviews this restaurant lurches from excellent to terrible. It all depends on your expectations and perhaps how busy they are. We ate on a Monday night in July, no booking, the place not busy, but sufficient numbers of diners inside to encourage us to try it. Having been sat near the back the place looked less... More

We stayed for a meal on an impromptu visit to Beer. The place was spotlessly clean, good service and great food, we were very impressed.

We visited with family, initially quite excited...30 minutes before we got to order...then another hour before the food arrived...cold. Not a place we would revisit.

We had high hopes when we arrived at this restaurant on the last day of our long weekend for my stepdad's 40th birthday, and dinner was on him. However, things turned sour very quickly. On arrival, we were taken to a table clearly meant for six when there were seven of us, so four of us had to get very... More

What a shame the service in this restaurant is not of the same quality as the food. We were a family group celebrating a birthday. The food was slow to come out after ordering but the major problem was that the waiter had forgotten to write down one of our orders. We know this because we heard him being told... More

Ordered a takeaway which was ready in 20-25mins. Quality of food was good, price was normal Indian prices with a 10% discount for takeaways. Staff were pleasant and friendly. Restaurant was fairly busy, based on this experience we will give the restaurant a go next time.
