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

Menu was plentiful and dishes can be adapted for vegetarian options too, although it doesn't actually say this but waiter staff were helpful. Food was very tasty and served piping hot. We all enjoyed our meals although portion... More

Great website, nice decor, very good service, average food. Not very flavoursome unfortunately. A real shame because they have everything else pretty much right. Could do with dropping their prices by 10%.

Came for a meal here and I was very disappointed with the food and and quality of service me and my girlfriend received! I would definitely not come again if I am in the area! If you love your Indians don't come to this restaurant you'll be disappointed.
