This was my first ever visit to this restaurant - usually use the other popular indian just up the road. Having heard mixed reviews in the past I was pleasantly the surprised. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very attentive. Wide variety of choices on the menu from starters right through to... More

We came to this restaurant as our other favourite was full. In the past we have received very poor service but decided to give it another chance as we hadn't been here for a while! The food was delicious there is no denying that BUT that's where the compliments stop! The popadums came out pretty quickly but then the wait... More

I use this restaurant on a regular basis, I have never had a bad meal either eating in or as a takeaway. I would definitely recommend it to any of my friends.

Ate here on a not very busy Saturday night. Was 45 minutes after ordering and a very long time staring at dirty, un-cleared starter pates that we were told one of the special mains ordered was unavailable. It got worse from there - incompetent and chaotic. Reasonable complaints where met with disinterest/rudeness which was at least consistent with the complete... More

There were three of us: We had 6 x Poppadoms (which came with excellent dips) 3 x Very nice prawn cocktails. 3 x Naan bread. 3 x Main course. Bottle of wine 2 x beers. This came to... More

Sad to see a big establishment empty on a Saturday night. The décor and ambience is there but something is missing. Went with friends last weekend. The food that we received was enjoyable but it was the pace of arrival that was off putting. We had only just sat down when the young waitress asked for our drinks order. We... More
