This place is wonderful. It has a load of really different items on the menu and will bend over backwards to make you feel welcomed and cook to suit your desires. The Cinnamon Chili Fish, an award winning dish, is just that.... excellent. Add sensitive, attentive service and you have a winning evening in store.

4 of us visited this restaurant about half 6 on a Friday. We phoned on the day and booked, towards the end of the meal the restaurant was starting to fill up so i'd recommend booking where ever possible. The staff were friendly and explained the menu to my wife who doesn't like spicy food and they offered to prepare... More

Great food, great service, reasonable price. I highly recommend it! Coming from Canada, we were in Kettering last year and enjoyed our evening there so this year we were sure to return.

A great restaurant with a good menu choice, the food is excellent and we return here regularly, it is busy at weekends so you will need to book. The restaurant is quite spacious and the tables aren't too close like other. Only drawback is a long stair which you need to climb..the entrance does not give impression that a great... More

And it is still the best!. The food is outstanding, after visiting the same restaurant last year, we decided to return again this year, with a little trepidation that the quality may have slipped, but we needn't have worried. This is still the best Indian food I've ever eaten, it's faultless.

Always a friendly welcome. The food tastes delicious and a good choice of more traditional Indian dishes instead of the usual balti/korma/tandori found in other restaurants. Been to this restaurant so many times we usually don't order from the menu but leave it up to our host to chose our meal for us. The restaurant itself is always smart and... More
