We went here for a last minute meal on valentines day. The food was fantastic but they could have done with more staff as service was slow but I would prefer to rate the quality of the food which was great.

The first thing that comes to mind is that there's a lot of space - many other Indian restaurants seem to be too compact and quite uncomfortable. Good service, good food and value for money. I liked it, we'll be going again!!

Very slow service. Had to wait almost an hour before getting served. Waiter said it would take an extra hour ("a long time") if we wanted to order extras.

Large, contemporary style restaurant. Almost totally empty the night I was there. Service was pleasant, friendly enough and dishes arrived probably a little too quickly.... Quantity good, but quality just seemed to be lacking a certain something - the dishes could have been almost anything, as there was not enough flavour or oomph to make them memorable. Prices reasonable, but... More

The Sunday Buffet is scheduled to start according to their website at 12.30 but I didn't get through on the phone to check it was still on, until 12.45. Apparently 1.30 is the new start time although when we got there at 1.40 it hadn't really started yet. £9.95 a head gets you 5 or 6 curries (mainly chicken with... More

Once again we had a great meal with very attentive service. 25 of us pre-booked a few days beforehand for a meal after 10 pin bowling just up the road. All starters, main courses and sides were served quickly and everyone correct. The meals were very good quality and plentiful. The waiters were friendly and very helpful. Would recommend a... More
