Went on a quite wednesday evening. Service was quick and food arrived within 10 minutes. Had the chicken jalfrezi, palak paneer and nan for £16. The chicken was very good, full of flavour, the paneer was tasty too however had a bit too much cream in it. I would go here again but at lunch time as they have a... More

A one off trip into Reading at lunchtime saw me park just along the road and took a chance on a decent Curry. Although small looking from the outside, I was treated to the finest indian food that I have eaten for many years. Staff were very helpful and tok time to explain some of the menu items. Top quality... More

There were 11 of us for dinner and we had a long table upstairs, which was great. Despite there being a lot of us, we didn't have to pre order and the food was all hot, freshly prepared and delicious. Everyone in the restaurant was really friendly and accommodating and service was brilliant. Can't ask for more than that!

Popped in on way home, a couple of Indian families were dining which is a good sign! Lovely starter of onion barjee. I asked for a recommendation for the main as I wanted vegetarian. When it came it was a disappointment. The veg was basically frozen mixed veg (all very small, peas, carports, French beans, other beans, etc). I asked... More

Great Indian food. Both of us had two courses and it came to around £15 per head. Not too spicy on request. Service was good but restaurant is a bit small (it has a large takeaway business). We nevertheless gave it 5 stars as food and prices are great, just don't expect a romantic candlelit setting. They accept AMEX.

Doesn't have much kerb appeal but what's important is the food and didn't fail to deliver. All dishes delicious, beer cold and very friendly service. Would definitely visit again.
