Constitently Good Indian Cuisine At A Reasonable Price!

Called in here after the England V South Africa game. Hadn`t booked but the restaurant managed to fit 8 of us in. Have eaten here on Match days before and the service and food is always good and very reasonably priced. Its a small place so it is worth booking if there are a few of you.Head of... read more

My party of 5 all remarked that the meals we all had were ones of the best we've ever had, with attentive service and nothing really to complain about, (apart from the lack of draught Cobra/Kingfisher, but this is a minor quibble). I had the House Special Biryani- yum! Recommended.

Clear the tables of cutlery and plates rather than take the orders. Weird, Poor ambience, cheesy staff, cheesy decor and dreadful service. Good if you have a guilt complex

Pleased with the overall service and that we didn't reserve a table and was able to dine. The chicken vegetable combi starter was very good. I ordered a chicken biriyani and could not eat it due to frozen veg curry side dish and the fact that the chicken had been cooked on a skewer as tandoori then put into the... More

We were hungry and just wanted a traditional Indian. Old decor, poor food and grumpy service. Spent less than 40minutes in the place. Not even sure if the chicken had over 50% meat on it. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Welcoming - clean and modern I had Lamb chops for starter - they were nicely flavoured spicy and hot. My main was Chicken tikka Jalfrezi asked for hot like Madras and it was great - just the right spice and nice strong flavours I had Tandoori Roti with my main - they were a little thin and crispy in places....

We had one of the best Indian meals we have ever had in England at this restaurant. the service was excellent with friendly staff. It also surprises us that it rates so low. Both our entrees and main course were delicious and the cost very reasonable for a restaurant in this area.
