Booked a table for 24 people of Valentine's day for my boyfriends 30th birthday. The service couldn't have been better. The waiters were attentive, the food was delicious and there was a wonderful homely atmosphere. 'Bring your own' drinks was very much appreciated by the group. Our new favourite restaurant off Gloucester road.

We have been here several times - with family, friends or just us as a couple and the food is always delicious. We ONCE had a bad experience with the wait for food which was over an hour but the manager was very helpful and couldn't apologise more! It's great value for money and will always be a favourite of... More

We decided to go out for a family meal to celebrate the New Year. It was a lovely event and we highly recommend the Balti butter chicken from the specials menu.

Eaten here 3 times now and have always come away contented. The reason am not giving 5 stars is to do with the decor. Staff are wonderful - place is clean, service prompt but not overbearing. They have a BYO policy which is very welcome and they food is well cooked, distinct flavours and light on the palate in comparison... More

I visited this restaurant early in the evening with my partner and our two young children. First thing I noticed was the relaxed atmosphere and the friendly nature of the staff. The decor was attractive and refreshing with brightly coloured photos of India and its food around the walls. Our food took a while to arrive so I wish we... More
