Popped in here as it was close by when staying at Ibis South Bridge. .Its BYOB, we just had a couple of cokes. Food was fab. dropped a star as service was a bit indifferent. Bill was reasonable. Would visit again.

Lovely and chilled place. My mum and I visit often for the lunch buffet which is delicious and very reasonably priced at £7.95. Great service too. One of my favorite little spots in town.

I got my hopes up reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor! TripAdvisor usually has fantastic recommendations. Not so sure about this one though.

It just... More

My partner and I with 2 friends had a meal here last night. I love Indian food and I have to say it was the best I've EVER had. The waiter was professional and pleasant. We all agreed that the flavours and quantity was superb!! Thank you for a wonderful meal. We will be heading straight to the Red Fort... More

This is a reasonably priced indian restraunt as compared to other with gud tasty food. Staff were courteous and service was quick. However atmosphere was too loud which became unbearable in few minutes.
