Our entire party was ill after visiting this place. I believe some of the meat was probably bad.... and maybe this place can be a good spot for Gordon Ramsey to do one of his kitchen Nightmares visits. Who knows what's going on in the back there.

We were a group of 18 guests. The restaurant needs some serious upgrading. We waited more than 30 minutes for our buffet meal to be served, although a a reservation was made days in advance and I contacted the manager four hours in advance of our time of arrival. Cracked/chipped plates were offered and only removed after I spoke to... More

The place is dirty, fat spill marks on the walls, staff not wearing protective clothing (headdress). Owner running around like a cat on a warm plate, food does not look very appealing, everything is drowned in sauce. The containers are not cleanly wiped around their side. Old food lying on the floor, etc.. Most certainly did on a number of... More

We were homesick and desperate for Indian food, and this was the one and only place we found. We did a takeaway, and had asked extra spicy, and it really was extra spicy in the 'real Indian way'. All of the dishes were well made and we were glad we ordered from there.

Tasty, well priced food but sadly shocking service!! After arrival we waited a considerable time before our drinks order was taken. None of the indian beers on the menu were available, neither were a significant number of dishes on the menu (no fish in a coastal town renowned for its seafood). We were attended to by the manager who walked... More

We bought lamb at your restaurant yesterday. To be honest it wasn't bad, but at the same time it wasn't great. You did however proof your willingness to offer great food and a great service. You have the right attitude and I appreciate it. If I may say - I think you will become a very successful restaurant if you... More

Basic decor and aesthetics, however the food was appetising. My girlfriend and I both ordered the nan bread and prawn curry, we both loved it.

I'm baffled by the last two reviews as I had been travelling a while - and had been craving Indian food for months - when myself and a friend stumbled across this place one night. We ordered quite a few things off the menu (including a korma!) and neither of us could fault any of it. I live in Manchester,... More

The restaurant was filthy, and although my wife and I were the only people there, we were told that we couldn't order starters because the kitchen was too busy... "Only mains". Do yourself a favor and give this place a miss.
