A party of 8 for a family celebration in a restaurant we have used before turned into an evening of delay, bad service and lukewarm food. Put upstairs in a separate room after we arrived at 7.30 and after going down to enquire about the delay we received our drinks at 8.30. The starters arrived at 8.45 and the main... More

I have eaten in the restaurant before and its been excellent, if you look at all my previous reviews they are generally positive, but my experience last night was so bad I felt the need to comment. It was quite honestly the worst take away meal I've ever had of any sort. All of the dishes were watery, the dhal... More

disappointing as service was so slow, No welcome on arrival, drinks slow to arrive , starters took 1 hour to arrive and when they did only 3 out of 6, the others went to the wrong table. After the other table noticed they only tried to bring them to us after the people had started them. We then had to... More

Service friendly and professional in dealing with the endless delays, but that was cold comfort. Really really unacceptable delays, some of the food was very nice, some of it was tough as old boots. Found a hair in my food. Sad because we used to love coming here, but there you go. Won't be going back.

I'm a bit of a fussy eater so wasn't really keen on going but after browsing the menu I realise this is very similar to Indian restaurant food. The food itself was absolutely delicious. The service was brilliant and the waiters got the orders right despite there being 14 of us. Very accommodating as I wanted to bring a birthday... More

I have to confess I struggle to differentiate between this and a normal curry restaurant, but I do appreciate the variety they throw in. The atmosphere and service could have been better, but there's a certain charm to the size of the place and the relative informality of the setting.
