Great food and great value!

Admittedly I tend to go on a Monday and get the student deal, but even without that this is great value. The food is delicious and they also do take aways. The restaurant isn't licensed, which I like as it means you can take your own drinks. The inside is somewhat tired but the food and service... read more

The sign on the front above the door says "Fully licensed". As soon as you enter the staff tell you that if you want a drink you need to go to the pub next door and bring one back. They have only a bring-your-own licence. The food was passable, and the service friendly. It was also cheap.

First impression was that it was a bit grubby - food remnants and stains on the seats, table cloth and menus, but as we had walked to it and were hungry we stayed. The service was good with decent sized portions but the tikka dishes which we were told were medium strength were very mild, but tasty. This place is... More

Waited over an hour and a half for a takeaway delivery which turned up cold, soggy and disgusting !!! Not impressed at all.

The poppadoms tasted like they were from Sharwoods packet and were not properly cooked! They even lacked crispiness! I was bit dissapointed. The Chicken Vindaloo I had was just essentially a chicken curry infused with chilli powder. Although I enjoyed it and managed to eat it, it did lack of a lot flavour. The restaurant has a bring own alcohol... More

We have been dining here since 1984 when we moved to Cambridge, just round the corner. The family who run it have always been extremely friendly, welcoming, helpful, and go out of their way to please. They really look after their 'regulars' and we invariably get complimentary starters. The food is truly excellent with plenty of choice to suit everyone.... More

Ordered takeaway from here as it was nearby. Chicken tikka masala, saag and fish curry were all excellent as well as the naan and paratha. On collection, staff were friendly and we were treated to free popadoms and dips. Will definitely order here again!

The people working here were very friendly, and the food was good. It was prepared quickly and the atmosphere was pleasant. I'll be returning.

Had a meal here after a lecture at Cambridge. Service excellent, food well prepared, fresh and tasty. I would definitely eat here again. If you're not sure what you want, just ask the staff, they really do want you to get a great meal and will amend their dishes so that you get exactly what you want.

Fantastic service and very good food with friendly staff who explain menu in great detail. Pub next door lets you bring glasses of beer into the restaurant and pick the glasses up later - seems tome to be the height of civilized eating and drinking!!!
