Probably the best Indian meal I've ever had. I've had so many poor experiences at UK Indian restaurants that I usually give them a wide berth - I was tricked into going here by my family -and I'm so glad I was!

After a Saturday meet at Newmarket races, we looked on trip advisor for a local Indian restaurant. We tried to book online but there were no bookings available, however when we called they were happy for us to have a table for 6:30 providing they could have the table back at 8:30 – which we were more than happy with....

The food was fantastic ! But what made this place different to other Indian restaurants was little things, like contemporary feel, beautiful win glasses ( always makes the wine taste better in my opinion ) great presentation and fabulous service ! I was visiting the area and went with friends and I would definitely go back here and highly recommend.

Visited last night (29th July) for the first time with friends, and we were surprised by how busy the restaurant was, a clear sign of its popularity. We certainly weren't disappointed with the food, but the service was a little uneven. We ordered two Salmon Ka Tikka and one Vegetable Samosa to start, one salmon & the samosa were brought... More

We visited on Fri 24th July after a long day on a course. Nothing was too much trouble, food was superb and a great atmosphere. Friendly attentive staff. We had the banquet which meant we could all sample different dishes, just wish I could remember which was which!

The décor is far from the standard Indian and the service is very good. The food nearly makes it and some of the dishes are upto a very good standard but if one has ,say ,five dishes then there will be at least one that is very ordinary. A pity as one would like them to be wholly consistent and... More

We popped into town yesterday for an Indian. This was the first one we came across, on a Saturday evening even though we hadn't booked we managed to get a table. The service is very good, attention but not overly so. The poppadums were good. They had been cut into triangles which made them much more manageable. The Cobra was... More

This place Is disappointing. Have dined in twice and had take out twice, each time "giving it a second chance" but yeah after 4 attempts we won't be returning. The food is not your average Indian cuisine, it almost puts a twist on traditional cuisine (which is fine if you like that sort of thing) but our feeling was it... More
