Had dinner here and found the service to be quite good. The garlic naan bread was very good. I ordered the chicken biryani rice specialty with medium spicy. For me it was way too spicy, and there was not a lot of chicken. It was a large portion though. The rice pudding dessert was very good. I will be more... More

More than I bargained for as there were Live dancers while you eat. Moving on to the food, ordered my usual lamb curry and it was splendid. Price was very reasonable also

This is an interesting place where I have ad delicious food on some occasions and not so good on others. Always service with a smile and the staff are very obliging. Pick your dishes and try for yourself.

Randomly visited this place and my title says it all it is a bit of an experience! The service is good with the waiters wearing authentic dress (a bit gimmicky..? Maybe but interesting.. Defiantly!). The plates are old school metal plates and at random times during the evening the waiters start dancing! The decor is what you expect from a... More

My first visit here. Located on the Uxbridge road it is easily accessible. It is a glorified Dhaba that serves good and tasty food. My first impression was not too good. Place was smelly, tables not too clean. Food served on steel plates that had not been wiped dry. One young person was serving and he was efficient and helpful.... More

When my family wants proper Punjabi cooking, we usually go get a take away from this restaurant. The entrance is interesting, with some large figurines guarding the door. Inside there is the kitchen area and then the seating area for the main restaurant. The place is always busy, and there seems to be a mad rush. I'm not surprised if... More

Very bad customer service. These guys have no manners how to speak to their customer. Not at all customer friendly. They overcharge you and when you object or say your concern they start quarreling. Never going back!

Restaurtant in southall near the hayes By pass 312. Rather tacky Indian figurines outside the restaurant and very much a cantine style and noisy restaurant. The food is good and on the hour 'let the music commence' the waiters start doing the Indian Bangla dance, which is hilarious, how on earth they have the energy to dance after doing their... More

This is nice budget place for quality food, you can take your own drinks and enjoy the meals in proper north Indian style, Ambiance is more set to be like Punjabi style which very good. This place is having open kitchen and food quality is too good if you compare with the amount paid. Very nice Desi place with Punjabi... More
