Currently you need to book a table, as it gets busy most nights, especially towards the weekend. They operate 2 sittings every night: 6pm or 8pm. Allow up to 1 hour for your mains to arrive from time ordered if they are busy...worth the wait.

I have driven past this restaurant on the A66 many times and wondered what it was like so we went to try it with a group of friends. The food was excellent with some unusual dishes as well as the standards,very tasty and nicely prepared. Staff were attentive and friendly We will be back!

Went for a meal with friends on Easter Sunday. Staff were very amiable and we were all greeted with a handshake. We were seated almost immediately and a drunks order taken. Drinks arrived with the obligatory poppadoms. We all had a starter and main course all of which were delicious. Portion sizes were ideal for sharing and the naan breads... More

We were kept to wait for more than 12 mins by the person who attended our phone call , to place a takeaway request.After listening patiently to clunking and cluttering of cutlery ,I had to give up and opted for other choices. Each time we had to wait there for about 20 mins to collect the order in past.

We made a reservation but arrived early in the hopes we could eat earlier since we could only book for 8.30pm. There was a free table. The place was busy and it was a good atmosphere. Lots of lights... More

Had a family meal with 5 of us all ordering something different. All came hot and we all enjoyed our meal. The restaurant is remote and away from any town centre, so a drive is necessary. It is worth the drive.. What we found was that they don't rush you in and out like many Indian restaurants. You cannot just... More
