Lovely but a little overpriced

We visited 30th August as a couple. Had a lovely meal in contemporary surroundings served efficiently by pleasant, attentive staff. We had onion bhaji and chicken tikka starter, chicken jalfrezi and chicken bhuna, 1 pilau rice and 1 naan bread, 2 beers and 2 diet cokes and the bill was £48.25. Food... read more

Service was good and food excellent. There was a nice atmosphere in this place. Have grown rather disappointed with some of the other indian restaurants in the area and this is the first time we have tried this one. It certainly won't be the last.

One of the best Indian meals we have had. The food was delicious, the staff were great! We did not have much time as we were going to a show, so the staff made sure our food came out quickly, which did not affect the quality whatsoever. Would highly recommend.

Fabulous atmosphere, well over 100 people were in the restaurant. Delicious food. Good menu choices and wine selection. Great service from Sol and Shaney, who worked hard and helped lots of customers that evening with their particular needs. I hope the manager will reward them. We will be back!

We booked through table pouncer. When my friend arrived they had no record of our booking and she was made to feel rather uncomfortable. When we arrived and I showed them my text confirming the booking they grudgingly showed us to our table. We had 3 poppadoms which we were charged £2.70 plus £2.70 for chutney that we didn't ask...

Average at best. I had Prawn puree to start which was OK, my Chicken Shashlick was swimming in Ghee and therefore onions and peppers were not pleasant to eat. Rice was dry and not good to eat, Chappati felt like it had been made much earlier and kept on a hot plate, dry and almost like cardboard. No one asked... More

Ate here Friday night, ordered our starter and main meal, waited 50 minutes and still no starter's for me and my wife. informed our waiter and after another 5 minutes our starter's arrived to be told we had been forgotten about. How good does that make you feel. To be fair the food was lovely and got the starter's knocked... More
