Great food, pleasant staff

I have eaten in this restaurant several times both indoors and as a take away. The food is always consistently good and tasty. Fairly priced. It offers a wide variety of dishes. They value you as returning loyal customers.

The staff are extremely welcoming (even opening the door for departing takeaway customers!) and the restaurant is a pleasant place to be. The food is nothing particularly amazing but is still very nice all the same and fairly priced. They also do takeaway and you can ring up first so it's ready.

I booked a table for five on Easter Saturday at 7.30 p.m. I was surprised having read the reviews that the restaurant was not very busy. Taking this into account, the service could have been a bit quicker although were not in a hurry. We all ordered different main courses and all agreed the food was very good. The staff... More

We really enjoyed our meal here early on a Tuesday evening. We used the taste card which meant that the food was fantastic value. The quality of the food was excellent in the dishes we ordered; a chicken in ginger dish in particular was delicious. The service was a little bit on the slow side considering it was early evening...

Came here last night for a quiet meal with my Wife. (Sunday evening) We arrived at 6pm and were the 1st diners in there. Everything we ate was up to the VERY high standards that we have come to expect from this restaurant. My wife especially commented on how perfectly cooked her King Prawns were in her Dhansak. Keep it... More

Update from my last review. Starters and tandoori chicken are very good. Some of the mains are decent but others are creamy when they shouldn't be like the achari dishes. They absolutely have no idea about cooking a Biriyani. I have tried it there with Indian, Bangladeshi and Nepali friends on several occasions. All of us agreed theirs is totally... More
