Quite some years ago, I went to the BB with a number of friends, to celebrate my best friend's birthday. It was a fairly pleasant experience, but with some issues. They were all resolved, and all in all, it was ok. Since then, I have been occasionally, and each time it was better. Last night, I took my Nippers, and... More

We order a take away for delivery last night and were very disappointed. It took over an hour to arrive. When it did arrive the food was cold. It had obviously been sat in the containers for a while, as the carton lids were soaked through with grease. We were very hungry, so ate some of it anyway, the flavours... More

Were there for 15 minutes before our drink order was taken, and we waited almost an hour before our food arrived. The food was good but this was overshadowed by the poor service.

Unfortunately at the time they were mid renovations but were doing an admirable job of keeping the restaurant open and clean and things are looking good for the future. Was pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of pinotage on their wine list which was a good start. We had a very good lamb balti and an equally good lamb saag... More

Had a takeaway last night (for 5 of us). Ordered at 6pm as we'd had no lunch and were starving! Takeaway delivered by 7pm, excellent quality and piping hot. Very pleasant delivery driver as was the lady who took the order over the phone. We have eaten in the restaurant too, but equally as good eating at home. Definitely recommend... More

Small restaurant offering cosy dinning. The food is excellent and service is quick. Good atmosphere, nice fresh new décor and good lighting. Takeaway delivery also offered.

Bitterne Balti is always a great curry and the Tarka Dal is amazing. Consistently friendly service and atmosphere; always willing to try and fit you in, even when they're busy. Even better since all the hard work to renovate the place.
