Another great meal

Popped in on Saturday night for a curry and had the mixed platter sizzler and chicken bhuna. As usual the food was great. Like going here as always a good atmosphere, very pleasant staff and good value for money. Excellent

My wife and I decided to try our local Indian restaurant, but were intensely disappointed in all aspects of our meal. The drinks were poor, and they seemed to offer a very small choice, the meal was insubstantial, and the service left a lot to be desired, although the waiter didn't spill a curry over us as had happened on...

I've been here on many occasions. With family and friends. Never disappointed. Many charity nights, my favourite was the Indian themed Burns Night where I played my bagpipes and other pipe band members recited Burns etc. The food has always been of top quality and the hosting skills of Issy are second to none, this rubs off on his staff...

The restaurant was very busy which you'd expect on a Saturday night. The staff were very friendly. The restaurant very clean with a lovely atmosphere. The food was amazing, you had plenty of time between each course. The naan bread was ginormous! They brought out birthday cake & completely drinks for my daughter & husband who were both celebrating there... More

Food is fabulous and excellent value for money! Been many times and always been very impressed with the service! The menu offers great variety, we have tried many dishes and everything has been amazing. It does get very busy at weekends so be sure to book. If you are a whisky drinker they also offer a very impressive selection! If... More
