We have been to this restaurant regularly over the past few years. It is good value on a Thursday and Sunday as they have a special menu. Three of the last four times we have been at least one of the curries has had no spice to it at all. It has been more like a lentil soup with some... More

Butter chicken and something called wamba samba. Omg sooo delish! Best Indians in Chester le street. Service was ok, but a lot of people were waiting to take away, so I didn't mind waiting as the food is worth the wait.

First time visit but won't be the last loved it! Great little place, welcoming staff & fantastic food couldn't fault it. Great choice with some different than the norm choices, good decor well worth a visit.

The venue is smart, clean and welcoming. The staff are wonderful and very accommodating. The food however was average for the 12 people in the group, 4 of which have had deli belly immediately after the visit. Personally I wouldn't go again, £250 for all wasn't worth it I'm afraid.

No welcome, no smiles so very difficult to rate the service at even average. Chasing drinks and courses spoils any evening. Really salty food that really does not stand out from the crowd.

I live pretty close to the Cookson, and as I and my partner are both fans of Indian food, we visit fairly regularly. I can't say I've ever had a bad meal there, and I've always found the service to be attentive without being overbearing. My partner's father is a curry connoisseur, and being from Bradford he has a selection... More
