I have visited this restaurant on several occasions all of which have been in a large party of work colleagues. The staff were extremely patient and attentive as one or two of the party wanted variations on what was available on the menu. The food was absolutely delicious and I can't wait for someone to organise a visit in the... More

Visited with friends and relied on their knowledge to order and realised I should have been bolder in my choices. I'm sure we'll return because the atmosphere was really good and the service was also good so I'll try something with a bit more kick. It seemed as though the waiters would oblige with any of the dishes to make... More

Went on Saturday night (7 of us) following a trip to the Food Festival. We didn't want starters but had poppadums each with dips - nothing flash. We all ordered. My husband had a mixed thali, the waiter explained what it was and said it could be as mild or as spicy as my husband wished. There was no spice... More

Had a meal here with family. Ate early and was surprised how busy it was. Glad we booked. Food excellent and some hidden gems on the menu. We each had a 'chef special' and as a result had an Indian meal that we had never had before. Absolutely fantastic. Service very good even though busy and very reasonably priced. We... More

We went as a couple on Tuesday (by one get one free on starters and mains) and had great starters. Best peshwari naan I've ever EVER had, husband's rice and chips good too. Both ordered chicken jalfrezi and were disappointed by the lack of heat. It was far too mild. Decor and service excellent as were drinks. Good value for... More

Celebrated my daughters 15th birthday here and everything was just perfect. From the friendly staff to the excellent dishes we were served. Had a great night and will most certainly be returning.
