Had a superb meal here on Tuesday 25th August. Peshwari Naan twice as tasty as in my usual Indian restaurant and all three vegetarian mains we shared were very good, slightly unusual and light. Mango lassi lovely, service excellent and friendly, atmospheric music but suitably quiet.

Visited for dinner over the weekend with my boyfriend for our anniversary as we love Indian food and dinner was fantastic. The restaruant is much bigger on the inside than we thought and we got a nice table for two in a little area to the side which was great for a romatic dinner. There is a nice relaxed atmosphere...

I visited this Indian restaurant as my friend recommended it, and I have to say it was the best Indian I have ever had, I've been all places even in England you aren't able to find Indian food like here. The food was fabulous, I had the chicken tikka masala and my partner had the lamb rogan josh. Both were... More

Went with my wife. She had mild dish and I had chilli chicken masala. Everything was ok but nothing special. Dishes spicing heat was described by waitress and service was good. Good wine list and iced water was brought to the table.

I did a takeaway from this Indian restaurant. I was shocked to see the overpriced menu and unfriendly staff. I ordered chilli chicken, and did not see the price or the taste reflective of the price tag on the dish. Overall very poor experience and will not visit this place again. Avoid if you are on a budget. Poor Quality... More
