Been here several times over the last 20 years or so and went again as hadn't been for a few years. Food is OK but this time portion sizes for mains were very small - what I would expect starter sizes to be. Would have forgiven but pricing is about average for this type of place. There are dozens of... More

Nice restaurant, pleasant atmosphere. Couple of things I was disappointed with - the staff were a little off hand and not very speedy with service. The curry was LOVELY but very small portions! The desserts didn't live up to the photos on the menu! Very chemically. Wouldn't rush back because I've been to better, but I've also been to much... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant of which I have written many times before and were, as usual impressed with the freshly cooked food. In the past they have concentrated on the quality of the tasty food but presentation has not always been their strong point. This has all changed with better quality side salads to accompany the food... More

Visited 29/5. Nice environment, nice menu, food was very good. Just the right portion size and at the right price. Keema naan was to die for! Al in all a very pleasant trip and we will be back! Only negative - personal choice....is that the chairs weren't overly comfy....but that's my personal opinion!
