Came here last week without booking. Despite being very busy we were seated within 15minutes and had a lovely meal served by polite and friendly staff. Will definitely come here again!

We thought that as it was awful weather we would have a take-away. But we braved the rain-laden winds and came here. Good job we did, as it proved to be the best Indian food I can ever recall, absolutely top notch. If there was one criticism its that there wasn't quite enough sauce, but as I was full up... More

My first time visiting and i can say with certainty this will now be my regular indian to visit. Why bother with any of the others in the area when this is clearly leagues above! The service was excellent, friendly without being intrusive. The food was absolutely incredible, the Sunaheri Machli was superb, sea bass clearly fresh and the flavours... More

I've been here twice now - the first time as a group of four and the second time as a group of 12. On both occasions we were not disappointed. The food is beautifully cooked and the staff are patient and friendly. The range of food on offer is staggering and you wonder whether they can guarantee that all the... More

This is on our list of favourites. Staff are outstanding, food is 'Indian with a twist' making it a lovely different experience. Definitely worth visiting (more than once).

We were booked in at 7.45, but due to changed timetable we arrived at 7.10. No problem- we were seated immediately. The waiter gave us some recommendations, and the meal that followed was wonderful! Best Indian meal I have had around these parts for ages! Everyone was very helpful and friendly.
