Reasonably priced and very good food. The service made this place excellent. Friendly, professional and efficient service. Very genuine attentive staff. Didn't wait long for food and it was hit and fresh. Best Indian restaurant in the area.

Visited this place recently with two of my friends who recommended that I try it out. The staff were spot on ensuring that we were happy with our meal and making sure we felt welcome. Food was of a very high standard and the overall cost didn't break the bank so I was very happy. I will be back for... More

This was a very nice find in Middlesborough. Food was fantastic - one of the best curries I have had in some time and the massive nan was fantastic. Only downside was trying one of the large Bullit Chillis which literally set my mouth on fire!!!

Found a hair in my meal and had to argue with the staff about its origin despite it being jet black and I'm strawberry blonde! Then when management came over they took off the Naan bread where I found it embedded and no apology! Not been back since!
