I love Indian food, indeed trying food from anyway in the world so can be a bit fussy. I could fault this restaurant at all over two visits. The different curry's we had were spot on, tasty and plentiful. The staff were helpful, generous and knowledgeable. Absolutely no complaints at all and can't see how it could be better.

Very good curry but it is true the service is a little odd ! Friendly but slightly Basil Fawlty, I definitely wouldn't be brave enough to complain, but we didn't have to as the meal was very good !

Being from the midlands I like to think I know a thing or two about curry, and tend to think anything outside of Birmingham or Bradford as not having a chance. Tonight's curry was absolutely gorgeous, blew anything out of the water I've had at home. The special lamb jalfrezi was perfectly spiced and just the right hot whilst the... More
