Food is good, and does not take too long to arrive. Waiters do not hover around you as occurs in some restaurants. Very centrally placed, but not always easy to park though it gets a little easier in the evenings after the shops are shut.

Excellent service and excellent meal. The waiters are non pushy, do not hang around the table and the wait between courses is just right. Very nice.

Do not patronise this restaurant. Waiters are rude, the service is appalling and the food is mediocre. If you've got hours to waste then fine but why not make a reservation at The Taste of India next door. It's a quarter the size but the service is great and the food is ten times better.

When visiting relatives in August we had a take away from this establishment. It was the worst curry I have ever had. It was swimming in grease and had no taste. I have given it 2 stars as they did deliver it. I will be using the Indian restaurant next door to this in future.

I came here as the little Indian restaurant next door was too busy unfortunately. I'll admit, I was a bit nervous with this place when I saw 40+ terrible reviews. However, the starter was tasty (duck tikka) but was a little overcooked and took 30 minutes to arrive. The main (garlic chilli chicken) was good but it didn't taste of... More

Whilst the food here is good, the staff are not the friendliest and the speed of service is very slow. Be prepared to wait a long time. The decor however is lovely!!

We ate at this restaurant last night, after having had a few drinks in the local pub. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The food was good, well presented and delicious. At the end of the meal and after paying, the staff were kind enough to give us a small glass of baileys to end a lovely evening. Over all,... More

I have had a couple of good meals here but the service is never friendly like next door. I don't think I've ever had a meal where everybody has got exactly what they ordered which is particularly annoying when you have to wait for so long.
