Hubby ordered a takeaway. He phoned it in at 6.30 for collection at 8.15pm. The place was very busy. Waited over an hour for the meal to be ready..great expectations but it was luke warm. The crab starter tasted like cheap crab paste in a sauce, the puree tasted like lard. The prawn dish was a game of find the... More

This is one of the best Indian Restaurants I've ever been to! The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful and the food is superb! I had a starter and main, and took half from each home as the portions were so huge! The menu is extensive and the venue iis comfortable and not too big. An altogether delightful night out.

What a little gem hidden away in Chester le street. We arrived for opening time, so it was very quiet, but the service was impeccable. Very friendly staff who chatted and immediately made you feel welcome. We were given plenty of time to look at the menu and the food did not disappoint. Extremely reasonable prices, good portions and due... More
