Standard restaurant

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...

Guys, I have eaten here a few times and all I can say is avoid. To my absolute disgust I discovered after having a meal here late on Saturday night all the staff live and sleep in a room at other end of the restaurant, I apologised to the staff member for keeping him so late and asked him had...

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.

Food here is Devine, everything is full of flavor, fresh and all homemade. Menu is unique, much better than your average Indian. The staff are so so friendly, very obliging and welcoming. 5 * food, 5 * atmosphere, 5 * staff! Would recommend to anybody!

I was sceptical about visiting here, simply because there is so much variety in the menu, from steak to Chinese and from chips cheese and curry to madras. I stuck with the traditional Indian dishes and was pleasantly surprised. My boyfriend and I ordered about 4 veggie sides and shared them with rice and bread which I love doing. I... More

Had dinner recently and was very disappointed by the visit. Service was slow and request for water had to be made on four occasions. Our drinks order arrived at the end of our meal. Food was average and since our last visit I felt the restaurant has slipped.

We have been coming here for almost 10 years. The consistency of the food keeps us coming back. Whether hot and spicy, calm and creamy they have something for everyone! In recent years they introduced non indian food, also delicious and varied but we will always coming back for their tender spicy dishes as we love that best.

I used to love going to this restaurant and even when my mum visited me, I took her, my sister & best friend here as a treat because they love Indian food. Unfortunately though I bought a voucher and it was my mistake in that the expiry date was out by a few days. You would think they would be... More
