We did complain to the staff but didnt make any difference. Would not... More

Service was excellent and the atmosphere was very relaxing! Would definitely return but do not... More

I have eaten here many times with friends, and always enjoyed it. The food is superb, the staff very friendly and welcoming. It has a clean, calm atmosphere, and smart decor.

The food and the service was excellent. They catered to my fussy needs...no onions. Good value for the money too. Restaurant was decorated to a very high standard and has a good entrance for disabled customers.

We were staying in Durham for the bank holiday weekend, and decided that we'd like Indian food on our first night. Having looked up the restaurants on trip advisor, this one came up top and looked very nice from the pictures. We were warmly welcomed and offered a nice table for two. When the starters came out, they were great.... More
