Overpriced and Rushed

We popped in before going to see a show at the SAgE as their website advertises a pre-concert menu, and we were there in good time. On arrival we were even asked if we were going to a show and they indicated that it would be absolutely no problem. We had to be there within 1 hour 20 minutes, so... read more

Really surprised by the quality of the food here , I was worried that it was over priced but really worth it. staff attentive and helpful. Fantastic cocktails made by a young lady. I can't remember exactly what we had but I can't think of another more authentic Indian experience here. I spent months over there and literally this is... More

Overpriced to begin with then they add 10% service charge. We had 2 drinks, popadoms, 2 main meals, 1 rice and the bill was £55! The food was ok but the choice of dishes is limited. Service was ok. Lacked people and atmosphere especially as it was a Saturday night. Won't be going back.

I'd wanted to eat here for yonks and we finally made it before Christmas. To be honest I expected it to have a bit of a buzz being on the periphery of town on a Friday night. We were welcomed by the lovely lady who took our coats and had a chat while the Head Honcho (Owner?) gave us menu's... More

The ambience is good. Went there with my colleagues, The food was OK, a mix of north/south dishes (dint have some authentic north Indian dishes, nor had some south ones, sort of a mix), overall an average place, especially considering the taste and value for money (expensive). The service was Ok as well. There are certainly better options in the... More

This restaurant has won many awards and it is not hard to see why. It is so different from the normal Indian restaurants. You can tell how classy it is from the moment you walk in. The staff are very friendly and attentive, as was the manager on the evening we visited. We had a Living Social voucher for the... More
