Good food albeit a little expensive

Myself and my wife recently ordered a takeaway from this restaurant, and enjoyed it. We ordered the spicy popodoms, sharing platter for starter and chicken madras for mains, and it was tasty. The madras has good heat, which we prefer, and the chicken was succulent. The only downside i would say... read more

Myself and my husband visited over the Christmas period and from start to finish the meal and service was dreadful. We waited a long time for our meal and had to keep reminding staff, no one...

For years I have passed this establishment on the eastbound side of the A66 Darlington to Teesside and it was because of its whereabouts , despite the good reports , it never appealed. However, my friends and I opted for a take away order. When I called in to collect the food, the place was heaving. It was 7.00p.m.a cold,... More

I've driven past this restaurant for years and years. This was a treat for my Daughter (15) and the whole family love Indian Food.

Visited again last night after a long gap and staff, choice, food and atmosphere still great. Dont worry that its at the side of a busy dual carriageway you dont really notice. No rushing through courses and nothing to much trouble.
