Our party of five had a most enjoyable evening here on the occasion of my daughter's graduation. Food was excellent especially the prawn dishes and a delicious sag paneer, Although not particularly cheap, the portions were generous. Restaurant is well decorated and service very professional.

We visited on a Sunday night recently for a friend's birthday as a party of six. We were happily seated and asked if we would like drinks. Cobra on draught is lovely along with a curry and the friendly waiters always made sure that nobody had ran dry. The currys themselves were spectacular. Brilliant generous portion sizes and plenty of... More

We had another excellent meal here during a recent visit to Durham. We have visited this curry house many times and have never been disappointed. The food is well presented and extremely tasty and the service is always polite and efficient. Reasonable value too. Recommended.

Despite having pre booked food for a party of 19 we had a wait of an hour and 10 mins for starters and then a further hour for main courses.... We even resorted to clearing our own table between courses. The manager and staff didn't care and other diners were making simar complaints. Definitely on the list of places not... More

The food is fantastic and the service very friendly and efficient. The starter was fabulous, I had the prawn bhuna puree, which contained the freshest juiciest prawns I have ever tasted. My main course was a house special with chicken and spinach, which was delicious, as tender as I have ever had. Well done, and to top it all, situated... More
