2 serves of the entree sampler was a good suggestion from the waiter for our table of 8 and a great way to start the meal. Beef Vindaloo was interesting with a back of throat chilli burn and not too strong a vinegar flavour. The Saag Gosht my wife selected was nice and all of the other guests enjoyed their... More

Love this place. The butter chicken is incredible. The other dishes are good but the butter chicken is quite spectacular. Nice location across from the water, good outdoor dining and friendly staff. One of the best Indian restaurants in town!

Fast service on Wed night. Food very tasty but a little pricey for Indian food. We sat outdoors which was nice and the service was prompt and attentive. Would recommend this place for a meal.

My daughter wanted Indian, and so we ended up here. It may not be as bright and shiny as the surrounding establishments, but the food was tasty and the service very quick. It was a Wednesday evening and they seemed to be quite busy, maybe half full of tables and endless stream of people getting takeaways, so it definitely has... More

I ordered an onion bhaji that was obviously pre cooked and not necessarily today. It was cooked in oil not hot enough and was dripping in oil. The main course, a so called Chicken Tikka Masala, was bland and had no spice infusion and tasted like it came out of a tin, no disrespect to Sharwoods, since it was not... More

Food is always amazing. Have been coming here since it opened and every time whether it be takeaway or dine in, is fantastic! TIP: If you love mango, try the mango chicken. Mild is nice if your not into super hot dishes.
