Had a meal with friends on 17th Jan. Food was excellent but we had to wait quite a while for it. Seemed to be more interest in takeaway s. Would definitely eat there again as the food and service eventually was good.

We have visited this establishment on numerous occasions over the past 3 years & hed wonderful food & service every time. The staff are polite & attentive...even remembering us from previous visits months before! Would recommend to anyone, we have taken our 3 yr old grand-daughter to eat there! Get there early week-end evenings.

I ate here last night and found the food really nice and the service was also good. I like the style of the restaurant and its very welcoming to have a sit down meal. The portion sizes were quite good. I would eat here again when I'm next down

We arrived here looking to have a Saturday night curry. We had to wait 10 minutes for a table even though there were a few empty tables. There only appeared to be 2 members of staff on duty and were running round trying to take phone orders and serve diners. We were given menus and asked if we wanted popudum... More

The best Indian takeaway I've had in the area. Admittedly I don't have them every week but this was just delicious. A half hour wait in the restaurant was well worth it. Staff really friendly. The restaurant was packed so always a good sign too

The food was good and portion sizes healthy. Went on a Friday night and the takeaway was clearly popular. The staff seemed a little uncomfortable although the service was prompt and efficient. Enjoyed our evening here.

Hadn't checked tripadvisor, but restaurant was very full on a Tuesday night, which I took as a good sign... how wrong one can be! Had a very average meal - naan was undercooked and lamb was a bit chewy, but all edible. Slightly off putting being served my biriani from a take away metal container inverted on the plate which...

Food horrid, nasty and full of sugar. Even the Naan bread was inedible. When I tried asking the waiter for naan bread that was actually cooked he started shouting at me as if it was my fault that the food served was disgusting. So I walked out £30 lighter and still hungry. Give it a wide berth!
