Visited thei Indian restaurant last night because the one recommended to us which is next door was full. Really glad it was because we had a great meal here. The chef even produced a lamb special dish for me based on my curry preferences. It was fantastic. This is afamily run place with authentic food.

Good food, friendly and attentive staff, everything seemed clean. My wife and i went on a Thursday night so the weekday set menu was on, which had good choice and was a great price. After the standard poppadoms and pickles, our starters were enjoyable. The chicken tikka punjabi style is amazing, i would definitely recommend it! The main course and... More

I booked my table a week or so in advance as it was a Tuesday when they have a special Thahi night, this is a sort of Tapas night. We paid £11.95 per head... More

Good Food, good ambience and a good night! The restaurant is a family owned and has been trading since 1947, a testimony in itself of the quality and expertise. We were craving for an Indian Chai and they offered me one off the menu and on the house. 5 star there! Will be back and would recommend highly. Well done... More

Went with a table of four friends last Friday night. Absolutely perfect! The staff were more than accommodating as we booked last minute. Had a couple of onion barji for starters and was packed full of flavour. Followed by possibly the tastiest chicken tikka masala I've ate, the meals were well portioned and full of flavour. The bill came And... More
