I've been eating Indian food for over 50 years and this venue is easily the best in town with plenty of known dishes to choose from and wonderful service.

Menu is extensive and includes all your Indian favourites served in (too) large helpings. Happy to revisit..

Came here as part of a stag-do (not the loud messy sort of stag do), it was recommended to us, so we booked a table and went on a magical curry journey. I can see why it is a popular restaurant. The service was great, and the food was out of this world. I couldn't recommend this place high enough.... More

We visited with some friends in January on a weekday and still fairly busy! We've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is always good, reasonably priced and the staff most polite and friendly. Would also definitely recommend the house wine to wash the meal down!

Probably the toughest lamb I've ever had in a restaurant. The 'sizzler' came tepid with no spark of life. No chef should have despatched the order in that condition and no waiter worth his salt would have taken the dish from the pass and then served it ! Very disappointed after previous reviews.

Very tasty food, pleasant staff. Have eaten in and had plenty of take always. All delicious. They will even tweak curries to your level of heat which is a bonus.

I love this place. They will cook in veg oil rather than ghee if asked, meaning you can turn veggie food into vegan very easily. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and a pleasure to visit.
