Been to this Indian on several occasions and the only bad thing to say is that they don't deliver! The food is delicious and they have a good variety to choose from. Pleasant atmosphere and they have done the best with what is quite a small area for the seating plan.

Excellently priced, parking at side, very, very friendly staff, all lovely. Food is amazing. Chicken chat is my favourite starter followed by saffron special with peshwari naan. Chicken madras is also excellent. I have had most of the dishes on offer and I have never had a bad meal. I have had the honour of visiting chef in his kitchen... More

After visiting for my mums birthday meal it's safe to say we won't be going there ever again. The food was bland lacked flavour and laced with salt! The only saving grace was the owners attentiveness! Poor value for money and seriously overpriced

I live quite close to this restaurant so I tend to get takeaways more than eat in. I have eaten in around 3 times last year and the restaurant seems very clean and organised staff. The starters are much better than the main dishes. So much so, if I get a takeaway, I generally just buy starters now as a... More

Have been a patron of this place for years and - with one exception - have never had a bad meal. I tend to collect (i.e. takeaway) rather than dine in the restaurant itself, that said though on the occasions I have dined there the staff have been friendly and courteous, and the dining area is very nice. The food... More
