My lamb madras was tender with a super tasty sauce whilst the pilau rice was just right. We had a window table which looked out onto St.Katherine's Dock just as the sun was setting. Perfect! Defiantly book ahead and go for a table with a view as it's well worth it.

Had an evening meal here as my husband had been a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. The setting is lovely and the food was superb, however, when our bill arrived they had added a 12% service charge which we were not impressed with and so will not be returning.

I had asked for my jalfrezi to be "spiced up" but found it tasted very bland.My wife's biryani was also poor,the vegetable sauce resembling a thick soup.Service was average and we seemed to struggle getting our requests acknowledged.We would not...

The fish dishes are very tasty and plenty to choose from. They did automatically add the service charge to the bill which I do not agree with in... More

The setting is pleasant and the food is fantastic - it was so good in fact that I ate here twice in a week!! I went for the chicken tikka vindaloo, keema fried rice and sag poneer! Everything was perfect, especially the Sag Poneer!! Well worth a visit!
