We come to this restaurant when we want good Indian food (with a Bengali slant). The service is good, the food varies from good to excellent and they have a selection of Bengali dishes that are hard to find elsewhere.

I had high hopes because of other good reviews, but this just wasn't up to scratch. The chicken in my murgh jalfrezi was chewy and over-cooked, and the sauce... More

I had a chicken curry which had a thin watery sauce. Absolutely tasteless! My friend had a Korma which she said was ok but lacked coconut. Would definitely not return.

We have been back on several occasions since and are now regular visitors. The food and menu is excellent and fantastic value. It is no... More
