This is not a 4.5 star restaurant nor fine dining!!!

I booked a table for 5 for my husband's birthday dinner which was on Thursday. We arrived at 19:30 and were the only customers all evening (apart from the many take away customers). The restaurant is quite nice inside with a cottage like atmosphere, however a little bit dated in places (especially... read more

Food here is best eaten-in in my experience; evenings are best. Ate there at lunch once and had to wait over 35 minutes for our food. Takeaways are just terrible: bland tasteless Chicken Tikka Massala, anaemic Chicken Tikka starter, also bland. Chicken Jalfrezi was hot but again with absolutely no flavour. Same for the Veg Jalzrezi my wife tried to... More

We were three diners on a quiet Monday evening. Nice ambience and friendly welcome. It was clear when the food arrived that this was not your normal curry. The difference was obvious. High quality ingredients, lovely fresh spices and everything looked and tasted terrific. Awesome shaslik, and some wonderful recommended specialities. Just superb.
