Went for lunch and it great value at 8.99 for three courses. Lamb cooked to perfection as was the chicken tikka. Generous portions. Lovely staff.

I have been to many Indian restaurants but have to say this is one I will not be returning to. It was completely lacking in flavour, both the main course and side dish, the nan bread was the best thing about the meal. The main course plates were brought to the table before we had finished our starter. We left... More

Polite staff, very quick service, food was pretty much what you'd expect from an Indian restaurant but we were very impressed with the service. A nice surprise to find when looking for somewhere to eat in the evening, and was a pleasant way to end our honeymoon in May.

Not only the food, but the service is excellent aswell, waiters are very... More

Food was lovely when it arrived, good clean presentation, sufficient sized portions and not too expensive. Be sure to ask for their Indian red wines selection for a change, really goes with the overall... More
