You don't have a huge choice at the buffet but what they serve is fresh & delicious & it's well worth the money. We've never had a bad meal here. The only one gripe I have is if you arrive at midday,they are still setting up/cleaning. It can be a bit off putting when you're eating your meal & one... More

I went here early evening with my boyfriend, to say the staff were attentive was an understatement. However, they were not intrusive. A young waiter came over and explained the "specials" which sounded wonderful and indeed I did choose one of the specials which included king prawns and lamb. I was a little dubious at this combination but it was... More

We were visiting the UK from the Netherlands on business and the Holiday Inn, where we were staying, recommended this restaurant which was just within walking distance. My Japanese colleague and myself really enjoyed the food, I had recommended him to try Indian food in the UK because it is considered to be the best in all Europe. Well I... More

Order takeaways regularly and always has been first class. Definitely recommend the chicken jhalfrezi as I like my curries slightly spicy.

I have gone to many curry houses but always come back to this one. If you like your mild-medium spice curries I find that this is the most popular and best curry house in the area. I myself have anything from balti's down to butter chicken and every single time the dishes are sensational! Very nice ambience in the restaurant... More

We love it here we go often and always enjoy our meal. Staff are friendly the lamb tikka masala is so nice. We've been at very busy times on a Saturday so I would recommend you book as it is popular at weekends.

We went for the Buffett lunch and it was amazing. Wide variety of curries and starters with salad popadoms and Nanns. Very flavorful foods and you could tell it was cooked fresh they kept the trays stocked up well. Lovely atmosphere inside.
