excellent place to eat

The staff coped brilliant with our group of 38 even though we had only booked for 32! They were friendly and helpful even though they were rushed off their feet. The food was also lovely and good value for money.

food was good no problems there but throughout the meal the service got worse and worse. at the end of the meal the waiter called me back and said to me they had all been discussing who was more attractive, me or my daughter then continued to say to his colleague that he could have my daughter. this is unacceptable,...

They were so good. Fantastic food and a huge menu. Generous portions and well presented. The waiters had great senses of humour and patience which was needed as we under-estimated the numbers. They coped really well and even catered for last minute friends who wanted to join us but we're catching trains, so provided quick light bites and take always.... More

Had a great meal here with my boss! The service is brilliant, very helpful with helping you choose great food. The time the food is taken to cook is average. Would recommend.

What a delicious journey through a peculiar Asian cuisine. Not only have we enjoyed the various dishes but Azad took delight in making us feel at home and explaining to us what stands behind every recipe. Using genuine and very fresh ingredients is crucial for them. Each dish is presented with a flourish by caring and polite staff. We recommend... More

As soon as arrived we were welcomed warmly, the waiters were attentive without being obtrusive. We were given the menu ordered our drinks and settled down to decide on our meal, it was good to see different dishes on the menu and we were offered to try this years competition entry, it was amazing, not to hot on the lips...

If our bellies weren't so full we would have stayed forever, staff really friendly and there when you want to talk. Curry was delicious and the perfect heat, we needed it spicy enough to induce labour hah! Also very very tasty, and I'm from London!

Came here on a Sunday night, early as we had the children. We had the £8.95 four course buffet (kids shared an adult meal but there is a kiss menu). Very swift production of courses and really really tasty. Service was good, we had a window table which was nice, the owner came over to make sure all was well.... More

What a find. Definitely the best Indian restaurant we've eaten in. My partner Paul, says it was the best curry he'd ever had. The staff were professional, yet very friendly. We shared a joke about Abdul's age, given the fact we had frequented the same night club in Nottingham (closed) many, many years ago! We will be returning to Shrewsbury... More
