I just don't get the great reviews! Laid out like a school canteen, no tablecloths, paper napkins, waiters who stack your curry pot on top of the naan bread to carry it to the table. We had three different curries from the menu which all tasted the exact same!! It was cheap - £45 for 3 - that's the best... More

Great food and service, plenty of selection with both starters and mains and you just help yourself, the tandoori wings are out of this world. Definitely going back.

First impression when booking a table of 5 and arriving to them not having a table set up despite being empty, then there was the drinks order delivered with a dirty glass smeared with lipstick - makes a mockery of the sign in the door with excellent hygienic food served here, the waiter was miserable and didn't even Acknowledge That...
