Really Tasty

We had a take away from here tonight, we have never eaten in the restaurant but had take out many times. I had the chicken shashlik. I have not had it before thinking it would be dry as it comes on a sizzling platter in the restaurant. It was definitely not dry. I would go as far to say it... read more

Chose this restaurant as a place to meet friends. The meal was exceptional both in terms of quality and presentation. Definitely one of the best Indian restaurants I have visited.

We ate here on Christmas Eve. It always seems very busy here so I'd advise booking in advance. Our food was served to us promptly even though it was busy. The service was good and the food was very tasty and hot. It's a bit of a travel for us but it's well worth it.

Had a takeaway last night. Prompt delivery to Winchcombe. Lovely freshly cooked food and plenty of it. Recommend the chicken and mushroom balti. Will definitely use again.

I took my friends to the banquet in early October. it was so very good and having spent 3 weeks in India I can state without qualms that the food was of a very high standard and tasted so good. I was so pleased and in fact have asked for quotes for a banquet style evening for a Darjeeling based... More

We ordered a take away meal for two, the quality was really good, nice and fresh, and more than enough for two, we could have easily stretched to three :-) And for a home delivery, we live approx 4 miles away it was also really hot All in all excellent

Really enjoyable meal with beautiful service and delicious food. I especially loved the delicate seasoning of the scallop starter. Generous portions and happy to wrap food up for taking away.

Had another fantastic meal here, with both the taste and quality of food impressing me. We just love the food here, and it always amazes me that local people haven't all yet discovered just how good it is. I can't recommend it enough.

Having lived just down the road from this place for 3 years I'm annoyed we have only just discovered it! Went on a Friday night and it was just the right atmosphere, staff are very helpful and attentive. The food was defiantly up there with some of the best Indian food we have had. It came out hot and looking... More
