Ate here recently on a quiet Sunday afternoon and whilst the restaurant was quiet the food and service was very good. I disregarded portion control and my Biriyani was enough food for 2 people alone. We had 1 starter, 2 mains, large bottle of sparkling water and 1 Coke and the bill was just under... read more

Absolutely fabulous food, wine and great service! The atmosphere there was quite charming and the grab one offer is really a very good offer. Would defiantly recommend this place to friends and couples.

Very authentic Indian/Pakistani food with a wonderful array of choices. The restaurant also cooks Chinese and Italian dishes so there is something for everyone. I would recommend the starter of Chat Pat Cholay Chat.......incredible! I had Chicken Malai Tikka which was awesome. The main course came on a sizzler with the chicken lying on a bed of onions and covered... More

We had a dinner here and everything was just average. All dishes were given us without any explanation what is it, even we have asked every time. The staff had obviously good fun together rather than to serve the customer. I would probably not recommend...

Staff were very friendly and attentive. I ate here in their new Rooster Pil Pil restaurant with my family and we all enjoyed our meal. Food was well priced and soft drinks excellent value for a restaurant. Excellent experience overall.
