I entered the restaurant laden with items, the door was heavy and stiff....no help from the staff who simply stood and watched the struggle. Ordered a takeaway, menu hard to read due to poor lighting and the female staff's English was rather poor so communication was hard this was probably hindered by the overly loud TV. I was told the...

Went there with group of friends yesterday night- our train was running late- they still accomodated us. We ordered plenty- everything was very delicious . Good service. Its one of the places where you go only for its food. Do try the parotha and dry chicken- simple and yet finger licking good. Thank you for accomodating and serving us quite... More

The food here was great. It is also reasonably priced. There is a wider range of food so plenty for everyone to try. There are a lot of vegetarian options too.

Right, so it's a pokey little place, we decided on going to Shan instead on our first night. We ordered lots of different dishes as they were so cheap. Every meal was stunning in it own right. So many new flavours and fishes compared to Northern Indian restaurants. The Kerala chicken was incredible

We agree that the food overall is okay/good. Ambience is kind of simple, but with loud TV etc. We had visited this place some time back, and was okay then - probably startup. However, on some of our recent visits, we noticed a kind of unprofessionalism in the part of the staff. There is a lady who was arrogant in... More

First thing you notice is the cheap decor and living room style atmosphere in there. But this is a humble establishment where you sense the owners havent got thousands of pounds to put that all to right. The plastic bubbled tablecloths also catch your attention. In all honesty, before we ordered, our group were considering jumping ship, but we were... More
