Up and down food

All the food was fantastic except the naan bread which had a horrible sauce on it. The service was do so slow and not good to be kept waiting all that time.

I know this restaurant very well. If you want good, hot food and proper service visit mid-week. On a Friday or Saturday evening you won't get anywhere. A takeaway ordered on a Saturday night has had us waiting an hour and a half. If you absolutely have to eat here at the weekend BOOK A TABLE NO LATER THAN 6.30PM!!... More

We visited last night as a group of 7 ,they were very accommodating and coped very well despite being very busy. The trolley system of bringing food out works but clearly the kitchen isn't equipped for the size of the restaurant . Generally all was good just a bit cold with a wait which was fine and to be expected... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant every few months, it's our favourite Indian restaurant in the locality. The staff have always been thoroughly charming and the food is delicious.

When the restaurant first opened it was a pleasure to visit with good food, good service and a lovely atmosphere. Sadly, it seems to have lost it's way in recent months, the service has fallen away and the food well......on the last occasion we called we were served a very ordinary and cold meal so much so we complained as...

When the food arrived we had burnt nann bread and Luke warm dried up food. We asked... More
