Great dinner and good value for money

We found the restaurant on the Tripadvisor, it had good reviews, so gave a trial. They have a wide selection of curries from the classic's to some house specialities on reasonable price. The service was also good. I had a chicken Rogan Josh, which was excellent. If I am around Kettering next time... read more

My starter was the signature sea bass dish which is simply sublime. The bass was cooked perfectly with crispy skin, succulent flesh and subtle, sweet spicing. I had nilgiri cod machli for my main course which was indicated as being hot on the menu and it is, being between madras and vindaloo hot which was great for me. The green... More

Always greeted in a positive manner, I haven't experienced more polite and helpful waiting staff. Nothing is too much trouble, even if you want a dish not listed on their menu they will try to accommodate. I'd love to try more of their fantastic and rare dishes, but I love the usual ones I order so much I haven't tried... More

My husband and I chose this restaurant after reading the recent positively glowing reviews and were not disappointed. The restaurant was impeccably clean with crisp white linen tablecloths and a very pleasant decor. The staff were very smart, polite and attentive and the background music made for a very pleasant ambience. The food was delicious, fresh and well presented and... More

Have been here many times as a couple and also in a party of 16 the food and service has always been fantastic. Their lunch time menu is unbelievable value at £5.95 for a starter and a main and would highly recommend it.

Let me start by saying that I wasn't a very big Indian food fan, I'll have the occasional korma, but that's about it. So this is where I'm coming from... This restaurant has changed my opinion, their dishes are fresh and exciting, the service was very good - I couldn't fault the food. The restaurant does get a bit noisy,... More
