Always a pleasure

Catching Sunday lunch can be a bit samey. Either you do a carvery or an all-you-can-scoff-for a tenner buffet. The buffets tend to be middle-of-the-road, and for a chillihead, that's no recommendation. Nice to see that ED has not joined the stampede. While their attempts at fusion are not... read more

Beautiful food, we have visited twice now, both times in a party of 4 and have had several differs dishes all of amazing quality and detail as the picture others have taken show. Lovely tasting food with average prices, neither cheap or too expensive.

The entrance and stairway is little underwhelming but once upstairs the environment is good. What was excellent was the choice of indian foods and additional exotic choices. I opted for kangaroo, which was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. The service was impeccable from the hosts. We look forward to visiting again and have recommended it to friends and family too.

Have been here three times now, all for birthdays. The food is always very nice and a reasonable price for the quality and portion size. The menu is very varied including the standard curries plus other unusual meats. The staff are friendly and helpful, and on our most recent visit were handing out roses to the women, as well as...

This really us by far one of the best Indian restaurants. The menu has the usual currys on but also pages of different dishes for you to try. The service is excellent and value for money with the quality of food.

We really loved the starters of ostrich and rabbit which were perfectly spiced. The The duck and goat mains were good but not exceptional, however the dhall was simply divine and was the best we have tasted outside of India. Service was friendly and efficient although the place was a bit quiet we did not mind. Well worth a visit.

This was pretty much a late night spur of the moment dining decision. We have visited this restaurant on 3 previous occasions, however, we are led to believe that it has changed hands. What a great difference. We were welcomed, seated immediately and the food was great. Nicely spiced and great flavours, also quite an extensive menu choice, not just... More
