We found the Red Fort by accident whilst wandering round looking for somewhere to eat. It was quite late and we ended going in because we were very hungry and it was there. However, this was the a huge stroke of luck as without a doubt this is the best Indian food I've ever eaten. There's not a single thing... More

Four of us booked and ate here last weekend. We had poppadoms, veg pakora to share and a variety of four mains with rice, naan and paritha. The service was exceptional and the quality of the food was delicious. Unlike some other Indian restaurants each main looked and tasted unique. The Jalfrezie could have been slightly spicier for my taste... More

Was looking for somewhere for lunch and decided to try here. Been eating curries for many years up to Michelin star and this was one of the best. I'll be back

This place is located on the side street, its prices are reasonable but food is ok really. BYOB is a big advantage but wont really compromise on the quality of the food for that. Would i go back again? May i give another try but not sure at the moment

The reason to come to this place is for the lunch-time buffet! For less than 8 pounds you get to eat as much as you want (in my case usually three plates) and there is also a drink and a desert included. The food may not be the best Indian I ever had but it's still quite tasty. There are... More

I've been to this restaurant loads of times over the years and thought I really should review it so others know how good it is. I went with a few folk from work last week, two of whom are vegetarian. Great choice of veggie and meat curries, really tasty - I love the chickpea curry - eat as much as... More

Poor quality indian food I ever had in UK. This is a buffet based restaurant , vegetarian dish is satisfactory . But the non-veg food is really awful . I do not recommend

Went in yesterday for lunch and we were glad we did. They had a selection of 5 meat curries and 5 vegetarian curries along with some starters, nan and rice. For £7.95 we got a welcome soft drink, helped ourselves to the buffet and got a coffee at the end. The food was good, not the best Indian I've had,... More

First visit for Sunday buffet lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will return. Excellent value (£7.95?) Ample choice incl veg options. Dishes monitored and renewed. Lamb madras (?) the pick. Chicken pakora v good. Papadums and pilau rice also good. A lighter make-over would lift the atmosphere. BYOB too so v modest bill. If you are on a budget, this is... More
