Went here for a friends 50th birthday and there were about 45 of us. We had the buffet and there was an excellent selection of starters and mains and the service was impeccable. The food was very tasty with a good blend of spices without being too powerful. Some of the best Indian food I have had. I would highly... More

Visited last night (May 6th) to find the restaurant quiet. We were greeted with a handshake by the affable and accommodating Abbey. Skipped starters and went straight for mains, mine being mutton Jaipuri and my partner (who Abbey thought looked like Monica Galetti!) had King Prawn Biryani. Both were absolutely excellent and one of the best I personally have had... More

Takeaway & delivery, excellent service from initial order to delivery. The Indian food is in my opinion the best in the area. I really like the way you can choose which curry sauce you would like with the Tandoori dishes. Delivery bloke very friendly, well done.
