Don't be put off by the outside upstairs is really nice. We were seated quickly and drinks order taken. The food was delicious and as the name suggests they serve exotic cuisine. My friend and I ordered what we like and I can thoroughly recommend the Lamb Dopiaza with Chilli rice. The peshwari naan was the best I have ever... More

We have eaten here three times now. The first two were excellent, the third rather poor. The menu choice is more than just extensive, but the quality seems to depend on the day you go there. Twice, at weekends, the food was surprisingly good. Beautifully spiced with a perfect blend of flavours and textures. Midweek, however, we were about the... More

Yet again this restaurant produced a splendid meal. Table of 7 enjoyed a wide choice od starters and mains. Professional and friendly service staff. We chose not to have a dessert as everyone was fairly full, or too embarrassed to order one... Prior to settling the bill, the waiting staff suprised my daughter with a candle lit chocolate browny cake/dessert.... More

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 first-rate, one cannot fault their mastery of Indian cuisine. If you... More

The owners are great guys and always try to accommodate to everybodys needs. I can safely say this is definitely one of my fav restaurants of all time, they seem to... 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.
