Good reliable curry and friendly service

My in-laws live in the village and we often visit for family gatherings. The service is always friendly and attentive without being over bearing, and the food is very reliable and good.

Excellent food and service by happy looking waiting staff. Only complaint is that it was a busy Saturday night and the restaurant was very noisy. One off the downsides of working available space quite hard

The worst Indian meal I have ever eaten. Greasy food, covered in greasy onions. My tandoori chicken starter, forgotten, then not cooked through and tasteless. Cutlery thrown across the table by the waiter because he could not reach. Never again

Very good place to go for fine Indian/Bangladeshi cuisine. Service is always with a smile and waiters are always attentive. This is a restaurant however and not particularly hospitable to solo drinkers wanting to stand behind the bar. You do have to sit down and order food in order to get alcohol. On the whole however, a good experience.

Great, so we headed out. We arrived at 1.15 pm and noticed that the sign on the door also stated that they were open... More

Dined here 11/10/2015 to celebrate our wedding anniversary whilst holidaying on the coast. Chose here as reviews read before hand were pretty good and seemed a good option. Staff were friendly, service was a little slow as quite busy and the food was average, not bad, not outstanding. Found the chicken a bit tough and the meal a little bland... More

Ate here on a recommendation from friends. The food was very good, service very quick. Not sure about the neon lights and modern music - quite like Indian music when I have a curry in a restaurant. Had trouble paying, gave us the bill and then never returned, ended up leaving the bill and cash with the waitress behind the... More
