This small restaurant is always busy - their takeaway lines are always busy, this says it all really. Always delivered on time with a smile and occasional freeby.

Eagerly awaited first visit to this restaurant. Initial impression was that it is smaller than I expected from the gallery photos etc. - only 30 seats I believe. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Having been to probably hundreds of Indian restaurants I thought the menu was quite limited with no soups, pathia dishes or okra or aubergine side dishes. However,... More

Popped in to order a takeaway as haven't got around to getting in for a meal as yet. Have to say i see why it is recommended from the food. Was very tasty and different dishes had their own flavour. Not oily and very filling. Some different dishes on the menu and all the favourites too. Some interesting starters to... More

Booking advisable especially at peak times, but they will always try hard to accommodate you. Wonderful chef's specials certainly worth a taste. Have been eating here and enjoying food delivered to home and rate it a minimum 9.5 out ten, ten out of ten times!

Visited the Blue Ginger last night. I've been to this gem a few times, and never been disappointed. The food and service is first class.... walking in last night I was greeted by the owner and the 3-man service team and shown immediately to a table, had a drinks order taken and was given the menu. I live in the... More

Our favourite Indian by a mile!!!! The staff are so welcoming and friendly, you're always given plenty of time to choose your food before someone is trying to take your order so it's lovely and relaxed! The Lamb Biryani is probably the best I have ever tasted but mine and my husbands absolute favourite is the Lajawab - chicken &... More

Decided to treat my stressed out wife to a spur of the moment meal at our favourite Indian restaurant. Despite not having booked we were treat like old friends and managed to get the last available table. Ali and his team were the perfect antidote to the stressful week we had both had. Food, service and atmosphere were exemplary as... More
