Choose this restaurant based on reviews on trip advisor, when we called in at 7.30pm it was already three quarters full, and as we we're waiting for friends booked for 9.30. Came back and order starters with mains. Drinks effectively delivered quickly. Starters arrived within reasonable time and tasty, hot. Mains arrived and thought we had ordered to much but... More

The Staff are very accommodating, as I have an allergy to Tomatoes. Very polite and treated everyone as if they were special. The food was very nice, you could taste that it was freshly prepared. The atmosphere was quite and relaxed. Some dishes can be pricey but its worth a treat. Will be returning for a great evening.

I actually first ate in the restaurant last December and completely forgot that I'd been here until a friend recommended it. Visited with a work colleague tonight 6th January and I had a really amazing dish.: AMAZING. I had a seafood dish from the two page menu of just seafood and I was delighted with my choice. The food was... More

Out of all the Indian restaurants we've been to, this is by far the best. The service is always exceptional! As we have been in a few times now the staff remember us and always make us feel extremely welcome. The food is also fantastic! Had a range of dishes from this restaurant to both eat in and takeaway, and... More

We recently visited the Spice Merchants for our office Christmas party as we were keen to go somewhere with good food where the choice wasn't cut down to a set Christmas menu. We were not disappointed. Both the food and service was brilliant, the food all arrived at once (we had a large table of 15) and anything we asked... More
