Birthday meal

First time at this restaurant and won't be the last. Positive initial impressions were built on with excellent food service and decor. As usual when we go Indian always order too much resulting from the ample portions the inevitable doggy bag is requested. That's Monday lunch sorted.

Went here for my dad's birthday and couldn't fault the service or the food. Extensive menu with loads of choice from classic Indian dishes to some Signature items on the menu.

We went on a Tuesday evening and had a starter and main course for £9:95 each. The restaurant is very relaxing, clean with lovely decor. The staff were more than welcoming and ready to please. The timing between courses couldn't of been better. We had no pressure to eat quickly and the staff brought the food to the immaculately presented... More

Once again we have both had an amazing meal tonight. Tried most Indians around Chorley this is a regular for us now. Quite a big place which is great to get a table early evening at the weekend. Food was amazing and can never fault service. Definitely worth the extra few miles drive to get such a great meal with... More

By 9.30 I'd had to ask a number of times for our starters. We then endured another 45 minute wait for the main course. The... More
