Visited last week for takeaway and ordered a chicken tikka saag with a couple of poppadums and pickles. Had a beer whilst I waited. Paid £19!! For a plastic wrapped takeaway - I didn't even dirty their plates! Waiter looked a little confused when I placed the order of the food, as if he'd not heard of it before? Anyway,... More

When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted with a warm welcome and all the staff were very friendly. We had a fabulous dinner and the restaurant was full which says it all. Even though it was busy, we still had great service and the food was so fresh. We'll definitely be back and would recommend it.

Had a meal there 31/01/15. We were shown to a table straightaway and had starter on the table within 5 minutes. Food was piping hot & spicy as well. Only crticism was not enough time between starter & main. When the table was cleared after starters they brought the main course straightaway, needed 10 minutes at least. Apart from that... More

For me, this is the best restaurant ever! My husband and I have been going there for at least 30 years and I can honestly say we've never been disappointed. All the staff are lovely and fall over themselves to be helpful and the manager Naz has become a good friend. I can recommend the Meat Thali, my favourite meal... More

From the welcome on arrival, to the door being opened for me on leaving I have to say this was a great dining experience. The restaurant was relatively busy with what appeared to be a mix of families, couples and groups of all ethnicities. I settled on a half carafe of the house red along with a complimentary glass of... More

Went here with 5 other friends, service was brisk and efficient if not a little bit unfriendly. All the food was pretty good. I had a Lamb Dansak which was really very nice, juicy pieces of Lamb. Another lad had the same and was equally happy. Another of our group had a Lamb Bhuna which he said was braw. Another... More
