A nice surprise to be taken to the best curry house in Banbury on my birthday. A great curry served in a timely manner. We all tended to stick to our usual: Chicken Tikka Marsala Chicken Passanda Chicken Korma All served with rice and chick pea dhal!! Great curry, great price, great service. Cant knock it!

We have been visiting and using this takeaway restaurant for over 20 years and it has maintained its excellent standard. The ingredients used are first class, the tastes varied and full of flavour, the portions are very generous and the surroundings nicely up-market. Excellent venue for either a special event or a quick meal after work. The proprietor knows his... More

I have said it before and I will say it again, fantastic restaurant. Lovely interior like sitting in a comfortable lounge, fresh ingredients, great flavours. My wife's Birthday fell on a Tuesday so even benefited from the Tuesday special price. Thanks for the wine. All the best see you again very soon.

Firstly this is NOT one of your bog-standard Indian curry houses that you go to with the lads after a night on the beer. The food is freshly cooked for each order to regional recipes from the sub-continent - full of flavour, herbs and spices. Although the baltis and standard madras are available, I would strongly suggest that you go... More

Got a takeaway and the food was cold (I live 3mins from restaurant) and naan was burnt. I was very embarrassed as we were entertaining. Also it is quite a bit more expensive than other curry outlets in Banbury

Well where to start. We booked this restaurant back in April and confirmed 24 hours before that we would be attending. The owner took it upon himself to then give our table to someone else because we didnt confirm by 3pm on the same day. At no point were we informed that this is what we needed to do. They... More

Nice food, fairly priced. I paid £25-30 for two main courses, one naan bread and two beers. Food was fine, but the serving of the vegetarian main course was rather small, more like a starter.
