Very good Indian food. Attentive service.

We ate here on a Groupon deal. The food was very good with generous portions. Service was good. The chicken tikka starter deserves a special mention...delicious. Good value for money with a reasonably priced wine/ beer menu.

After talking up this restaurant to a group of friends and assuring them that though expensive worth the money, this meal ended up being the worst I had ever experienced. We waited an hour for the first course to arrive! And then with every course there was mistakes and omissions. Then we were given a bill for a whole stack... More

Frozen chicken, rice tasted suspiciously like Uncle Bens, nan bread was poor, popadoms were okay, but that's not hard to get right. Probably the worst Indian meal ever.

My husband and I visited here for our wedding anniversary dinner as it used to be somewhere we would go occasionally when we lived in Belfast. We haven't been here in about 3 years so we were relieved that the food was still gorgeous! It was quite early evening so it was very quiet - maybe only 3 tables full... More

We love this place, onion bhaji are the best we've ever had, cooked fresh and massive, gorgeous flavour. As vegans we have a good selection from the menu and have been happy with our choices. We have visited Lolita using social deals frequently as always a good offer (we are cheapskates). The staff have been friendly and happy to let... More

Only 3 tables booked in on a Friday night...Why? Two words. Frozen chicken. Possibly the worst curry I've ever had. A jal frezi lacking in any discernible vegetables. An undercooked, tepid puri. Limp, lifeless, colourless, under marinated, certainly not cooked in a tandoori oven, chicken tikka. No lentils that we could detect in the dansak. Cobra beer not chilled properly.... More

The greeting was good and the service continued to be attentive. The menu was accurate and clear. The quality was excellent and all 4 of us enjoyed the meal. We would recommend this restaurant.
