Great Food... but OMG £3.90 for a pint of Coke!!

I have eaten in many Indians in many places and the food here is really good... BUT I am disgusted at the price they charge for soft drinks. Whilst this is not the core of what they do I am not happy at being charged £3.90 for a pint of Coke, which is the same as a pint of Cobra.... read more

Was by far the worst meal I have ever attempted to eat, the plates were dirty and we were told by the waiter don't worry, your not eating from that side! There were 12 people in our party and only one person was happy with their meal. The rice was cold, lamb was undercooked, chicken was cold, naan breads were... More

We were sitting at the table in front of the last review. The service was ridiculously slow and took 2 hours for one course! (the only thing they were quick with was getting us more of the expensive drinks). The food when it did come out was medicore at best and the keema naan was the very worst I have... More

Horrible service - took over 2 hours for us to get our mains. When the food did arrive it was horrible! Naan bread so disgusting, 3 of our group spat it out, cold chips and rice, uncooked meat and the bottom of the plates were disgusting to which they said you don't eat on that side. Out of the 12...

The service was good and even though our table was by the door to the loo it was quite acceptable. The food was pretty much all the usual suspect but their opinion of spicy and mine somewhat disagreed. The two dishes we had were a bit limp-wristed but ok. And now the shocker. The people at the next table to... More

We placed an order online for four of us on Christmas Eve. Was a slight delay in delivery but they kept us informed the whole time and it actually arrived earlier than they said they would. Food was great, as always. Personally, this is my favourite Indian takeaway of all time!

I was looking for option of veg food and visited this place with my friend. I found there are several good options for Indian food. But things is you just can't order only side dishes, you will need to order main dish and then in addition some side dishes. Staff is rude and not much co-operative. They charged extra for... More

A great curry house with an excellent menu. Not the cheapest place around but the food is good and the service also.
