Ohhh yes!

Went twice in a week, the first i could easily class as one of the best curries I've ever had (including trips to india and pakistan), the naan bread was so fresh and light. Oh, and the chutney that came with the poppadoms was awesome, very different. Excited to repeat the excellent first... read more

So, this is a restaurant I have been coming to for many years, I have came as a 'normal' customer and have sometimes used Itison vouchers. Tonight we decided to use 2 vouchers we had purchased to treat family to what we thought would be a lovely Indian meal... We were wrong... Firstly we phoned up to book a table... More

Have always been in the evening and had curry and has been good. Today went for lunch and had a couple of lighter things - starter and dosa. I didn't like the dips that came so asked for some yoghurt to mix in with my dips.... Couldn't believe they charged 99 pence for a small dish of yoghurt. I said... More

I normally love this place, and you normally get a great meal but on this occasion we did not sit in and ordered a take away to collect. The food was not good. Okra was fried beyond edible and looked to have came out of a tin. Lamb rogan josh and dopiaza was also so over cooked with oily watery... More

Restaurant always serves good food and I have been there a number of times. However on 23 Feb 16, we went there with our friends and it took them over 1 hour and 30 minutes to serve the food. There was another group there who had the same complaint

Visited here after finding out from a friend that they sell dosa's and was pleasantly surprised by the service, quality of food, and price. The dosa I ordered was fantastic and I got served a big portion which was very satisfying given it was less than £5. Complimented the chef and the waiter as the only dosa I've tasted which... More

We ate there on the recommendation of my parents, who live in Aberdeen. I was completely blown away by how good the food was - in fact, we ate there four times during the duration of my visit to Scotland. Service is good, menu is extensive and food arrives at the table quickly. My personal favourites were the Chettinad Dosa... More

- Firstly, the service was terrible, I can understand the people are exhausted, c'mon you're in hospitality business. - Food, chicken lollipop, chili chicken tasted the same - Thali was substandard with burnt smelling rice - You try to suggest something, they behave as though it's your fate you have landed here. - Manager or owner is invincible
