we enjoyed the Sunday buffet. All you can eat including popadoms and chutneys, choice of four starters, four mains and two different rice dishes and some particularly good naan bread. Would have made this a regular but sadly informed that they are closing down due to a rent increase. Would therefore suggest check before setting off.

Wow I can definitely say i had the best lamb koria ever. It was lovely and melted in your mouth. Just a pity it was quiet. I think the other two restaurant on the opposite side of the road get the advantage, but please bypass them and get to reshs you wont be disappointed

Visited last night (a Friday) as part of a large (25+) party. We had pre-ordered to make it easier, so we were not kept waiting for long! My starter, onion bhaji... delicious, well flavoured but not overpowering. Light and crisp, very enjoyable. Main, tandoori chicken with pulau rice. Again flavoursome but not overpowering. A couple of drinks. And a bonus... More

We've never had a bad meal at Resh's and i'm working my way through their specials all of which are excellent. However if a member of your party is particularly fussy, just ask and they'll amend any of their dishes and cook them just the way you like. Very accommodating and always pleased to help. A top bunch of people... More

I contacted Resh a week before to see if he could open early on a Sunday for a large party. It was no problem, so we had the place to ourselves (22 of us). There was popadoms to begin, three starters (excellent tandoori chicken, chicken chat and samosas) and three main courses (mild, medium and not too hot). Two types... More

We are normally big fans of this restaurant as can be seen from previous reviews, however tonight we have been left out wondering if they have changed the chef. We went in and ordered a takeaway from the restaurant itself which to be honest was not up to the usual standard. The chicken samosa starters whilst packed with chicken completely... More
