Service was awful. I can't begin to say how terrible the whole experience was. I would highly recommend NEVER going there. They were rude, inattentive, we had to sit and look at dirty tables all through out the meal where someone could have easily taken off the top table cloth. They forgot our starters with no apology and even charged... More

Arrived New Years Eve at opening time 6pm, already about 10 diners in the restaurant. Considering they weren't that busy took 20 mins to get our drinks order. This lovely tandoori is always busy, you just have to be prepared that they don't seem to hurry the food, takeaways always going out. We eventually got our main meal after some... More

Both ended up with dodgy stomachs. Very unhygienic there. When we arrived the table next to us was uncleaned from the Last diners and stayed that way all night. If that's what I can see out front I can't imagine what the kitchen is like. Staff and service are also very very poor. Food tastes ok though, so only go... More

2 of us had a takeout from here and went in to the restaurant to order. Staff were efficient and friendly. I thought offering a free drink to the waiting customers next to us but not us took the biscuit a little but I understand it could have been a regular customer. However, food was efficient, the restaurant was starting... More

Went with some cricket pals after the dreaded England defeat to Wales in the rugby World Cup. Despite our glum mood we had a nice meal and a good laugh. Food was good. I have had better curries but have also had worse. Tikka dansak had nice bits of tender chicken and a nice sauce. Could have been a little... More

I have only been using this restaurant for 10 years but my wife has used if for 20. The food is very good. Whether you use this restaurant for a one off visit or become a rugular, like many of their customers who are known to them, you will enjoy good customer service and will be made welcome in a...

This is only our second time to eat here, the first being when we moved to Leigh four years ago. The food itself was on the whole very nice, reasonable portions although the rice portion seemed very small ironically, given it is the cheapest ingredient in the meal. We found the service to be a little unattentive and the decor... More
