Staff here are good fun, attentive & very helpful. Maybe we went at a quieter time than normal but we found the service excellent. The restaurant is also much tidier & cleaner than the local opposition & even has proper tablecloths! Only had main course so can't really comment on all the dishes but those we had were tasty &...

We were recommended this restaurant as we live out of the area. We have dined in and had take aways all of which have been exceptional.

We were recommended this restaurant by our cab driver and he was spot on. Food was excellent, really some of the best Indian food I've had in a long time. Service by staff was quick and friendly. Our wait was a character. We had a great evening. Highly recommended.

We visited on two consecutive evenings while working nearby and really enjoyed this restaurant. The décor was fresh and clean there was a great atmosphere especially the head guy who we affectionately nicknamed “Gandhi” what a character who really made our evenings with his banter - thank you. The food wasn’t too bad either, would recommend the “Hot Meat Puri”as... More
