The staff were friendly and the service was excellent and the food was excellent and is one of the best Indian restaurants that I have been to. We will visit this restaurant again

The service was just about alright although the waiter was difficult to understand. The standard of the food was in my opinion poor. I had a vegetable Madras curry which was flavoured hot but that's all it tasted of, I think it was prepared only with curry powder and nothing else. I have tasted curries all over the world and...

This is a great, contemporary restaurant with brilliant food and good service. I was travelling alone and was made to feel very comfortable.

Had lovely food at this place. Went first on a Thursday and the food was so good we went back on the Saturday. We were initially told that no tables were available and then the waiter recognised us and said he would fit us in. It was a lovely gesture but in hindsight we wish he hadn't as we waited... More

While the food is actually quite good I have found the service pathetic. I've ate here a few times and the service has always been slow but on this occasion it was so bad we walked out. The restaurant was quite quiet and we sat for 20 minutes without even a drink order taken, while watching the staff chat at... More

I see people say the service is slow: don't you distrust a restaurant that produces the food in five minutes flat as if it came straight out of the freezer - or even a tin?? The taste is what counts, for me anyway, and the food here tastes really special. This week I made another 40 mile round trip just... More

Enjoyable evening, average meal, odd tasting dipping sauce with our starters extremely sweet, lamb & chicken overcooked. Table cloth marked. Toilets icy cold.
