Folks you have to try this restaurant out, food was tasty, very enjoyable, served piping hot. Red wine was not the cheap horrible stuff, but proper Cabernet Sauvignon. Restaurant is offering 50% discount Go on give it a go

Ate here with a colleague...when we arrived there were no other customers so no delay in ordering. Restaurant seems to be having a hard time as in a road with no natural footfall. Currently the restaurant is offering 50 percent off all food. We ordered starters and a couple of the chefs special dishes along with a steamed rice, a... More

We have been here a number of times lately and found the food consistently good. Staff are friendly but where are the customers? The menu has all the usual favourites although its best to specify degree of spice or you could be disappointed if it is milder than you expect. The house specialities are amazing especially the fish dishes.

Sat eve 6.45pm so noone in and ordered three take away dishes. 2 butter chicken and a chicken madras. I have never had a chicken madras which consisted of chicken pieces in a puree.

We visited on a Saturday evening when there were only 14 other people in the restaurant so I do not feel our problems were cause by... More

we've only had takeaway from here, but the food is delicious and we keep saying we must visit for a sit down meal. I had a monkfish curry for the first time and it was gorgeous!

We visited here last night as it had been on our list since we saw the high ratings on here. Both of us like curry but have had a series of rather poor ones so quite a lot rode on a decent meal. As we pointed out to the eldest son who had the joy of serving us! I had... More

Fabulous food, had to be the best Indian in Bedford. We ain't exactly struggling for choice and having eaten at many places here this is got to be the best by a long shot. Great food, presentation and a warm service.
