I visited this tandoori/balti restaurant with my family of eight. I was celebrating my birthday and just wanted to go local...and I'm so glad I did. 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

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

Ordered a curry tonight for me and the wife. Paid a £2.50 delivery charge and when the food came they had sent my wife a starter instead of a main and they somehow sent me onion bhajis instead of onion pilaw. When my wife phoned up to complain she was told we would have to go to the shop to... More

The food just lacked any real flavour, poorly seasoned and cooked, and, as it was a takeaway, it wasn't hot either. Meat was tender, was only good point. Mediocre iverall. Improvement needed...
