This place really does excellent modern Indian food at exceptionally affordable prices. Very quiet on the night I visited, but more than made up for by the welcome of the staff.

We went here because our usual restaurant was closed. The food was ok. Nothing too fantastic but enjoyable. The bill came to £10 more than our usual restaurant. Staff were pleasant and friendly

The menu is really different in a very nice way with the accent on flavour and real spices that really make this a must try. The menu is diverse and covers all the... More

The food was fab. It is the closest I've had in this country to anything served in India in recent years. The green banana curry was wonderful. Its a little more pricey than other local places so I checked the bill carefully - only to notice that a desert we had not had but the table next to had was... More

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to try it for ourselves. We're so glad we did! The food is Southern Indian & my husband had recently been to Goa. We had the Goan Fish curry which was excellent. All the food was tasty & service brilliant. If you're Peterborough & love Indian food don't miss out on... More

What a wonderful experience, it obviously was a pub, very tastefully designed quite upmarket, its the sort of place you can go for a beer and some Tapas rather than a meal. The restaurant wasn't very busy when I went but that was a Monday night, I was seated and two poppadum's arrived which were fresh, didn't think much of... More
