Disgusting! Curry was a congealed oily mess, popadoms were soft, coconut rice was fill of grated coconut. Never ever again!

The food is amazing, especially if you want a takeaway. I think the only down side to this place it the restaurant itself i.e. general decor (though un-offensive, just bare). But in my opinion the most important thing about a restaurant is the food itself, and trust me that is on point.

A thoroughly civilised group of people. The best indian food that i have had... More
