I've absolutely enjoyed every meal I've ever had here! Fab food and service. Good prices especially for the quality of food! Not your usual curry house. Food presentation is excellent. Wonderful cocktails too! Highly recommended.

We ate here as a party of five on a Saturday evening. The wait for the food was completely unacceptable. We waited more than an hour for our food. The waiting staff seemed fairly clueless and were pretty unapologetic. When the food came, it was however quite good, and somewhat different in flavour to the usual Indian cuisine. That said,...

You think of Indian restaurants as having flock wall paper and sittar music playing in the background. This restaurant is certainly not that. Refurbished in a ultra modern way in an old building gives it strange feel but in a nice way. It certainly feels like the in place to be. The service was a little slow, but the place... More

Visited this restaurant for a birthday meal but won't be in a hurry to revisit. The interior is tacky, they only seem to play a few songs on a loop and techno dance music isn't really appropriate in a restaurant. The problem with the decor is it's trying to be 'glamourous' but it comes across cheap and nasty. I would... More

Cardamom Black thinks it is something special, and like Harrogate restaurants in the 80s, feels that if it looks down at you you won't realise it is all a sham. The decor is, yes, excellent. However, the service is atrocious, not only is it slow (20 minutes to get our drinks order served), but is also too casual and offhand.... More

This is a very "glitzy" restaurant decor wise, a lot of glass, gold and sparkle. The menu is quite large with a good selection of dishes. The food was delicious. None of us were disappointed with our selections. The staff were helpful and there was a pleasant atmosphere. We eat there on a Wednesday evening so it wasn't too busy.... More

We stumbled across this restaurant and boy we were not disappointed. The decor and ambiance were amazing, the food and drinks excellent. Every single member of staff was friendly polite and courteous. We will definitely return soon. Many thanks for a great evening.

We booked on a Friday evening after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The night didn't start too well we waited around 10mins for drinks & then the waiter accidentally spilt our Lychini cocktail all over my partner's trousers... However we were glad we stayed the food & service was fabulous, we could not fault the food at all.... More
