Yes, the premises are small and it's a little cozy (ok, a little cramped) BUT eleven of us were treated to a great combination of wonderful indian dishes, accompaniments and friendly and attentive but unobtrusive service. Prices are very reasonable (£250) for a gut-buster of a meal, with drinks for eleven of us. You can't complain at that. I have... More

It's not a bad Indian resteraunt but it's not the best. It's very small and the food is fairly expensive but is good quality.

Not particularly cheap but definitely worth every penny spent. The food was great and the service attentive but not pushy. The restaurant is small and can feel a little crowded and noisy but if you relax and let that be part of the experience it soon becomes a fun way to enjoy a meal. Probably wouldn't work on as a...

Restaurant was busy and staff friendly. However we went for my birthday dinner and I feel that we were paid more than what it was worth . Dads chicken had bits of bone in the main course which wasn't satisfactory. I will not be returning anytime soon

Trying to do take away and serve a full restaurant on a Saturday night does not work. We waited too long for our main courses and were encouraged to drink more while waiting. It is a small restaurant yes but people were crammed in and there was strong smell of smoke on the waiters as they came in from the... More

We went here to celebrate two birthdays ... a big noisy, slightly tiddly group of tourist info ladies (our second time!). We had quite a variety of dishes between us all and every single one was absolutely delicious. The restaurant is always clean and well organised and the staff were lovely - attentive, charming and eager to make sure everything... More
