I have been coming here for years and the standards very slip. It is always packed and its age is testament to its quality. From the, asking to take our jackets to throughtful service, if anything there may be too many staff! The food is a little bit more expensive than other Indian but there is great choice and were...

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and thanks to all the reviewers who put on their reviews about this restaurant we enjoyed a wonderful dinner tonight. With the assistance of our waiter who made some great meal suggestions to us we enjoyed a great dinner at a very reasonable price

Enjoyed a birthday dinner here after reading other reviews. The service is exceptional without being overbearing. The staff greet you warmly, assist with hanging up your coat, make helpful suggestions, listen to your questions and smile. That's all a winning start to any dining occasion. The drinks menu is broad and caters to all tastes. The food menu contains a... More

The place was packed but we were found a table quickly. The food took a wee while to come, though it was pretty fast considering the number of people there. We had the bhuna gosht and the methi gosht both of which beautifully tender and tasty. The price was extraordinarily reasonable considering it was Wellington on a Saturday night -... More

This is some of the best Indian food we have had anywhere. We had dishes from the new items on the menu and they were both great. Service was excellent and the bill when we got it was a surprise - on the low side. Hard to believe in this day and age.

After seeing all the great reviews I was really looking forward to eating here, however I have had much better Indians elsewhere in the world. I ordered two dishes which were meant to be mild but one was way too spicy and I gave it to my boyfriend. Overall I was underwhelmed and probably won't return.
