Fantastic Food and Service

This is most definitely our favourite Indian Restaurant. The food is always excellent and you are sure of a very warm and friendly welcome.

In a wierd location, you will need a driver and to book, we went on Tuesday night and it was full. Staff were friendly, service was quite slow, but not a problem for us, we did however not order starters as we'd stuffed our faces with popadoms before they took our order. The menu has traditional curries but also many... More

The waiters were prompt and the food was lovely. Only thing that let it down was we waited ages for our mains. They were worth waiting for though!

We visit this restaurant often and are never disappointed. We rung up after a sudden decision to eat out. They accommodated us with no problem. The food was excellent the service was first class and the staff were extremely friendly. We are never disappointed and will be back again.

Great food and efficient and understated service. The prices are great too! It is not in a central location but it must have a good reputation as it is busy and you need to book. There are two sittings at 6.30 and 8.30. If only we lived nearer we would be regulars!

Our whole family go there for birthdays etc. the food is absolutely first class and is consistently mouth watering. If you order too much they are happy to put the remainder in takeaway cartons. This is a restaurant that takes... More
