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

I was given a voucher for 100 Euro from some friends as I liked this restaurant. Found out to my cost the voucher only lasted 3 months. I wrote 3 times asking could I extend and never got a reply. How mean to issue vouchers for only 3 months and not honor them. Crap customer service.

Went for an early evening meal while on holiday. They have Indian, chinese, pizza and European food on the menu strangely but we stuck to Indian. Other options were handy for the kiddies but they had korma and were happy out. We were the only people in the restaurant as it was early but still surprising there weren't more people.... More

We were looking for Indian restaurant and all doh the menu outside was very confusing (Indian, European, Thai, Italian)we decided to give it a go and it was really tasty. Usually when places are specialising in to many dishes it's not good,but all of us enjoyed our meal and it was enough on the plate to feel satisfied. Mango lassi... More

I've just had lunch (stuck to the Indian) and the food was really lovely. My only criticism would be that it was very salty. The service wasn't fantastic, but we wweren'tignored.

You are spoilt for choice in this multi cultural restaurant. Even the take aways are fantastic. The flavours and aromas of the Indian dishes are wonderful as are the Chinese dishes. If it was possible I would eat there every night.
