Decent food, friendly staff

I have tried the takeaway here and eat in, and both have been great. The staff are happy to recommend items if you are unsure and their suggestions have always been good. Definitely worth visiting.

Had a great meal in here in between Christmas and New Year. It was busy but the owner/manager always does his best to find a space. We were served promptly and our drinks were always topped up. The food was fantastic. My family, friends and I have been eating here (and at the Garden of India) for years. The food... More

Been here several times and average is the best I can say. Compared to other Indian restaurants within 12 miles its not the best but definitely not the worst, too much sugar and condensed milk added to the dishes for my own personal taste

Not a frequent visitor here but usually a couple of times a year and going back 20+ years and the Sunday Buffet we had today was very disappointing. Nobody in the restaurant when we arrived at 3.45 yet the service was really poor. Slow serving a drink and waited an age for the starter. When it eventually turned up, the... More

Went for a birthday dinner, about 30 in our group. The staff were polite, but, the service was on the slow side. People were still waiting for their meal while many were finished. My meal, both the starter and main were served warm (not hot). The taste was OK. Also a bit mean on the portion of rice one little... More

I had a king prawn korma, normally fairly run of the mill, but the sauce was exquisite and the prawns so very fresh. The whole experience was fabulous. Great, friendly service with food that puts your faith back in mother nature.
