Good food

The restaurant was spotlessly clean. Onion bargee was nice and we had chicken Balti and chicken korma with plain rice and nan. Food was fresh and tasty.... It does get busy, so per book. A decent find as we love curries.

Just across from the Avenue Hotel is this great Indian restaurant. Linen table runners and napkins, huge thali plates and good service made it a pleasant change from the pub food restaurants in the area. Each dish on the vegetarian thali was distinctively flavored, unlike some other U.S. places I've been. It is a bit expensive (the thali was 18.50... More

All male serving staff who look for the male in the party for first point of contact which is the only reason I've marked it down slightly. A cultural thing I'm... More

This is a fantastic Indian restaurant serving great food. It's clean and tidy with a good menu.

This place is popular so please do book in advance and reach before time. The food was splendid and the service by Mr. Singh was just perfect. What a great combination of good Indian food with warm friendly service by the owners. We had a delightful early dinner and honestly speaking, we over ate because the food was so good.... More
