Excellent service and good food!

Very friendly family run restaurant. Great service, quick to take orders and serve drink and food. Food very high standard and good portion sizes. They seem to have a very good return customer service - which speaks volumes. Been about 4 times would definitely return again!

Visited here on a Monday evening for a family celebration. When we arrived it was empty,very quickly filled completely. Obviously the Monday night banquet deal is pulling in the customers. Food was ok. Nothing outstanding,just typical Indian food. Plenty of choice on the banquet menu & the portions were huge. Our waiter however was one of the rudest waiters I... More

Even though told by a friend the food was not up to much, was excited to go and try. The whole dining experience was ruined by the Head Waiter who definitely needs to step down from his impression that he is a well mannered and 'good' at his job. The service received by him was unbelievably rude giving a very... More

I was really looking forward to eating at this establishment, as their reputation seemed good on here. Unfortunately, that reputation appears considerably overblown. On arrival, I ordered a still mineral water, but evidently they don’t keep any. Then I asked for Lassi: again greeted with a puzzled no. Finally I managed to get orange and lemonade. Not ideal, but at... More

Cramped in a corner by a door with mediocre service Average food and fraught lager was awful. Tip: if the waiters stopped talking and got on with it would be better... Not the best visit Shame

Ali offers good service, good food and good prices. I have been going there for years and he has never failed to give good service. The restaurant is small , friendly and has an old fashioned Indian feel about it. .

We've yet to be disappointed by the set-price Monday banquet. The choice is wide, the food is great and the atmosphere terrific... and then of course there's the extended happy hour. Ali and his sons really do their best to make you feel welcome. We've no hesitation at all in recommending this first-class Indian restaurant.

On my first visit I ordered what I call my 'Test Meal'. A takeaway meal that I judge all new restaurants against and I was extremely pleased with what I received. Not the most exciting combo but prawn puri starter was followed by chicken pathia with keema rice. All three dishes came in at 9/10. I'm sure they would have... More
