We went as a family of four and really enjoyed the evening. The food was great, my husband had the Handy lamb and thought it the best dish he had ever eaten.

Terrible! Rude service, bland food, overpriced, ruined my evening! Would not recommend to anyone! I did not like one thing about this place, spend your money somewhere better as you will regret it if you go here!

The owner has reputation locally for treating customers rudely and Friday 4th August he was on fine form. He upset 3 tables in the space of one hour, shouting at one party to get out of his restaurant - extraordinary. You are tourist fodder to him - you may want to avoid. Always empty in the winter - for very... More

Been before and it was great, wen last week and it has gone downhill. Very slow service 15 minutes before even being given a menu. Twice I had to go to the bar to ask for a drink and the bill took three requests and a total of 25 minutes to arrive. Food was ok but only ok but very... More

Very good Indian cuisine, with friendly service. Nothing outstanding, but we had a pleasant meal and the prices were reasonable.
