Firstly don't be put off by the décor!!! The service is very good, even though you may not be greeted with great enthusiasm at the door! We ordered from the Tandoori part of the menu (Lamb Tikka and Chicken Shaslik) with rice, we also ordered Bombay potatoes and a Lentil side dish. The food arrived promptly. The portions are VERY...

All of the long term waiters have now left and have been replaced with young, scruffy, stroppy waiters with no concept of customer service. The decor hasn't been changed in years and the whole place is dark and gloomy and worn out. The chefs may well have all changed too as the food is now poor at best. They've certainly... More

We have been coming here for quite a few years and have previously given a very good review, however this year we have really noticed a sharp decline. Whilst the food used to taste of fresh spices, it is now bland and unpleasant. Indeed, after our last visit we really felt we would have rather eaten supermarket curries. The waiters... More

Its the 3rd time i have been to this restaurant, and each time it is fantastic. I eat Madras alot of the time but have the above here. Its still a fiery dish but the taste is out of the world. Also very reasonably priced.

We decided to have a meal out on our last night so went for an Indian, the meal was well cooked and reasonable, we would go again. The service was fine, it was quite busy inside. PS the Madras is hotter then a lot of other places.

Went to the restaurant with my husband and two daughters on Tuesday evening. Stood by the door waiting for the waiter, and once he arrived - rude expression. I asked him if we could have a table for four he looked around and said one hour wait at the earliest, and that was it. No further conversation, if we wanted... More

A good restaurant that provides a 'traditional' curry menu. Also some more unusual dishes like lamb, mint and spinach curry.
