The restaurant itself looks very nice, it would be somewhere I'd quite happily spend the evening . The food however was poor and possibly the worst Indian I've ever eaten.. onion bahji was greasy and had to be rested on paper towel before I could put them on my plate .. prawn dopiaza was so oily I had to drain...

Obviously didn't try everything that was on offer, but all I did try was excellent. This restaurant has been previously criticized for over fussy staff and being hurried along... More

Went with my Mum whilst visiting her in Banbury. When we arrived despite booking for 2 in advance we were taken to a table for 4? They were not initially busy so service was very attentive. Food was good although my lamb tasted sweet when it was described as Hot and Sour. However by the time we were finishing the... More

We started with one of the best meat samosas we have had, crisp outside and subtly spiced. The dall soup was very good (with the addition of some salt and a squeeze of lemon juice). 4* at this point. This very large space was over half full, even though it was mid-week. The kitchen must have been busy as we... More

the was food good, service was what you expect. The pricing wasn't that clear and a few unexpected charges appeared on the bill. The popadoms were over priced and served before we new the price.

A lovely meal that was full of flavor and the service was brilliant too. You get the same high service even if you are just grabbing a take out. Highly recommend. Price is reasonable too.

The food here (two visits for four people) was very good, though I wouldn't say excellent, and prices very reasonable. The staffing was extensive and all the waiters were very pleasant, though they bustled around in a way that interfered with our conversation. This was a very good 'find' near to our B&B.
