Sunday Buffet

As with other reviewers takeaway service can be a bit slow on busy evenings and can be frustrating. However I would highly recommend eating in and in particular their Sunday buffet. £10 a head with a great selection of starters, breads and curries. Good quality food and attentive service from the... read more

We have used this restaurants delivery service over the years and it used to be really good but the last 3-4 deliveries over last 4 months have been very uninspiring, luke warm and taken over 1 hour to reach us. Chefs change regularly and I suggest that consideration is given to changing the Chef again. I like to support local... More

I've given one star only because there is no option for zero, the customer service and general running is like a bunch of 5 year olds running a business. I waited more than two hours for my over charged meal which was cold. The manager tried to make amends by providing a replacement meal a few days after which, shockingly... More

I was excited by the range of veggie options & had read largely good reviews but was disappointed on arrival. The delivery was 1/2 an hour late - given we're not that near the restaurant they should have estimated longer. All 3 dishes were excessively oily. The paneer was well cooked but was swimming in oil. The baigan & okra... More

From the service - waited 2 hours - to the customer service; which was terrible and rude, at the end the food was just disappointing. We never thought the food could be this bad!!! Overall I don't recommend and I will not return again.

Ordered a delivery, took about 40 mins to come but was well worth the wait. Delivery guy was really polite and I wish I tipped him more. We had a chicken jalfrezi, pilou rice, cheese and garlic nann bread and korma sauce, all of which were delicious! This meal was shared between 2 people and was the perfect amount. I... More

I am a regular here and the restaurant never disappoints. They have very good food and it is always reasonable value. I would recommend here, it is never very busy and you are guaranteed a good meal.

We enjoyed another meal at this restaurant this weekend and they excelled once again. The waiters are lovely and now remember our drinks and favourite dishes when we go here. We live over 35 minutes away but make the trip with friends just for their food, by far the best in London. Look forward to going back soon!

We tried this place when it first opened because it had originally been run by the same people in Forest Hill. We have since been returning and will travel out of our way to eat here. Our friends and us always compare every Indian we have to this place and nothing has ever come close to beating them. We regularly... More

I ordered from them because they had a good amount of vegetarian options and not just "vegetable _____". The restaurant delivered well over an hour before the time I asked them to and when I pointed this out the driver says to me "It does say that - Oh well!" and leaves! No apology from him or the restaurant and... More
