An enjoyable meal

Impromptu visit as my usual curry shop was undergoing a refit. Have to say the food was really nice, I have no complaints. Service was quite slow but they were very busy. I can't say a bad word about it but the service didn't woo me to change from my favourite.

Im trying all of the curry restaurants where I live and this one is possibly the best, but they are all good and none stand out until you take the next step to Bhoomi which is utterly brilliant but not cheap. I havent tried Prithvi

Managed to book a table with little notice. Surprised how busy it was. Food was very good, and waiter was attentive. Modern decor and very clean, especially toilets. Definately would go again. Large parties arrived 8pm onwards, so probably better to book prior to 8pm.

It's always a good sign if a restaurant is busy, we arrived here on a Wednesday evening about 9pm and almost all tables were full. We ordered their set meal for 2, £31.95, which was excellent value. The portions were generous and the food really tasty, we had attentive service and were really impressed. Bringing your own alcohol made it... More

Ok food, but slow, disinterested service make this a missable dining experience. BYO Alcohol keeps the cost low, but that's about all I can say. Will be happily paying a few £'s more for a balti elsewhere .

The food was okay at best, however you cannot have the popadoms until you order your meal which means a long wait for any food. The service was very rushed and we were made to feel uncomfortable. Would not recommend.

11 of us ate here on Friday evening. We arrived at 8.25 as our table was booked for 8.30; we were shown straight to our table upstairs. There were three other similar sized parties upstairs and downstairs was packed too. Our order was finally taken 35 minutes later and our poppadoms arrived at 9.30!! Our main course finally came at... More

Went here with a large group of friends, other groups were acknowledged before we were and there was a definite feel that nobody wanted to serve us as there was so many. We waited an age for some glasses for our drinks and then to eventually order. The food took over an hour however it came all at once which... More

Recently been doing a review of all curry houses in Cheltenham and can see comparatively with a local one that shall remain nameless (covered in blue tiles and has pillars out front) it is 100x better

This particular restaurant was recommended to me via a work colleague which turned out to be a massive disappointment. I ordered lamb chops to start which came out as diced pieces of lamb which were bland..nothing tandooried about them at all or chop like!!! I then had a very dry mixed tandooried meat selection for my main course which was... More
