Ate here after it was recommended by a work mate. I have to say I was slightly disappointed. Although everything was fine, it just didn't blow me away like a few others have done in Bedford. It was also slightly expensive. Chicken jalfrezi was fine, as was the onion bhaji. It's just that I've had better meals, better service and... More

We went on our first evening in Bedford, after a day's traveling, So we had no opportunity to try and... More

There is plenty of choice for a nice curry in Bedford, but this has to be one of my favourites! The staff are always very welcoming, friendly and attentive, and every time I have dined here they have recommended a main course from their menu, which has been superb...a different dish each time!! Nice for couples, but also excellent for... More

Came here early on a friday night. Service was good and staff friendly. Had the lamb dhansak which was nice enough if a little too sweet for my taste. Seems that the sauce as generic as my husband had opted for the chicken dhansak as he too felt the sauce was too sweet. That said the accompanying bhindi and saag... More

The customer service was terrible, they even forgot someones order. The waiter treated us like school children, shouting and putting us on pressure to order quickly. Won't be going back there again.
