Very Good Indian Restaurant

I often don't bother to go out to Indian restaurants, they feel a bit too familiar, a bit like fish and chips, not special. This one is very good with a wide range of dishes and quite a few featuring fish and duck, so not just the standards. It all tasted very good and the service was friendly and... read more

I visited this restaurant with my family after a graduation ceremony. As you can imagine we were not alone. All credit to the staff, our meals were hot and tasty and well served in good time. We didn't wait to long for our food and neither were we rushed. All our drinks arrived correctly and within an acceptable waiting time.... More

I visited this restaurant as I was in the area on business. First impressions were good smart decent sized restaurant. The food I chose was not that adventurous as it was chicken chat starter and chicken korai main. Whilst the food was decent the service was appalling. Other than serving my meals and taking away my starter I did not... More

This is a large restaurant with a stylish, smart and well cared for interior. The service is prompt and the food is nicely presented and tastes authentic. We have since returned and found the food was consistent.

The interior of the restaurant is attractive and spacious. We had quite nice starters and then I we had the Rangela Khana which is chicken & lamb with spinach, ginger, garlic, coriander, tomato & fenugreek. I found the dish really salty tasting, so much so I couldn't eat it. On commenting on this to the waiter he told me it... More

A bit expensive but service was quick. I ordered lamb shank it's ok for me but my friends really love it. Garlic bread is great.

Went to the restaurant to celebrate my birthday, staff were very attentive and helped to explain the different foods on the menu. All the food was nicely presented and the staff were quick to clear away dishes etc. Food was to a very high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Have no hesitation on a return visit in the... More

Despite the food being fairly good the dining experience was really below par. Service was slow and it took nearly 90 minuets to get our food despite the restaurant being empty. We were also overcharged by £50 which we luckily noticed, as a result of the bill being added up incorrectly. A real shame
