Tried this restaurant on the recommendation of a member of staff at the hotel where we were staying. Excellent food but TOTALLY overpriced! Come on ... please - just cos us Brits love curry there's no need to rip us off! Having got that off my chest .... the Panir Jalfrezi was wonderful. Service could have been a bit more... More

We decided to try a different indian restaurant for a change and opted for one we had visited frequently over a decade ago.. It seemed okay until we noticed what we assume were splashes of food/drink on the walls at the end of our table. The waiter was pre occupied and didnt bring the plates for a good 5 minutes... More

Good service, bland food. The Chicken Makhani (?) was uninspired - I could make better myself. There's no way they can compete with the new place next door. Even though their food sucks too!

We chose this Indian based on positive reviews, but we now wonder if we were in the right place. The soup was out of a tin and there was enough food dye (I think that's what it was because I haven't seen a jalfrezi that colour before) in my main course to coat the town red. The rice was standard... More

Having decided to go out for a family meal, the original indian we were going to was full, so we came across this little gem. Thursday and sunday night a set menu was available, which we all went for. Sometimes when going for a set menu you always feel that the portion sizes are reduced, this was definitely NOT the... More
