Decent curry at a reasonable price

We all had reasonable meals, the staff were friendly. The chicken chat starter was good and also the nan bread.

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.

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

I then had a very dry mixed tandooried meat selection for my main course which was... More

The staff were quite rude but did take... More
