Average with quality issues

Ordered a takeout from here, jalfrezi was very oily and some parts of the chicken were a bit rubbery. The keema naan was over cooked and tough have uploaded a pic and lacked flavour, shashlik meat was not of good quality either and quite overpriced.

We visited here towards the end of the night, so the restaurant was extremely quiet ( just me and my boyfriend ) but it was a fantastic meal, we ordered more than we could eat. The waiter was as professional as they come, very attentive but it may be because he had lots of time on his hands as there... More

The yogurt mint sauce which I usually like was very powdery but just had the chutney and onion instead. Special balti and the nan bread was lovely.. Lots f people coming in for takeaways, could do with a... More

Recommended to us by the people at our guest house. Good service, good curries. We had a korah and a rezalla, both were excellent. Nice buzz inside too.

Previous renews sort of put me off but not much was open this week so we gave it a go. Walked in and it looked very dated. However, waiters greeted us very well and were very hospitable. Food was on the whole pretty good, although shami kebab wasn't hot enough for me but other than that it was ok. Good... More

Three of us enjoyed a lovely curry. We had poppadoms and pickles followed by great starters (samosas and prawn pancakes). My husband loves a fish curry and they very kindly agreed to make him a special fish curry. We also had two chicken curries, rice and chapattis. Feeling full we did not have puds! A great meal and a very... More
