Attentive and polite staff

Despite the rather ordinary surroundings,this is a very decent restaurant with attentive staff eager to please.. The menu is wide. Food was tasty,though if you are used to the Indians of Sparkbrook on Birminhsm (as we are) you will inevitably be a bit disappointed. Plus:they gave us a free spirit... read more

I went with my partner but we weren't sure because of some bad reviews but it was actually very nice compared to a few I've been too! I had chicken tandoori to start which was really nice. I had a chicken madras which was delicious and spicy just how I like it! The naan bread was also very good! The... More

I thought I had made an error of judgement when I walked in and realised it was buffet night. I'm really not a fan of the buffet food. This wasn't an issue, as the a'la carte was also still on. Chefs special no2, with a side of sag paneer. Bhatura bread, and a beer. The main was like a combo... More

Was genuinely looking forward to eating here. The slightly unusual mix of Indian and English cakes and roast dinner makes a change...an Indian Restaurant and a cafe under the same roof is different and we were hoping for a nice Indian meal on this occasion. Generous size portions - yes. But from the outset there was a bit of doubt... More

Oh dear! I used to enjoy eating here. The staff used to be helpful, but either pour waiter could hardly speak English, or he just couldn't be bothered. Then 2 of our 4 dishes arrived complete with Rice. Even giant haystacks would struggle with these huge portions, which really spoilt our experience. All the frilly bits were fine, poppadoms, Naan...

Four of us went there for a Saturday evening meal after wondering what it would be like as we eat Indian food at least once a week. Very disappointed. On arrival for dinner a tatty sign proclaiming "cafe open" was not a good start as we thought it was a restaurant. Inside a TV was blaring and pop music was... More

Portions were generous but the food was disappointing. The massala dish was laden with sugar and too sweet. Staff were friendly however.

We ordered starters of prawn puree which were quite good hence the one star. My husband ordered a Vinderloo for his main, a good vinderloo is a balance of spice and flavour , this had neither, it was not at all spick and only flavour was very strong tomato. I ordered another hot dish that was said to be as... More

We've eaten here about a dozen times now and ordered home delivery. The last two occasions i've had the vegetarian thali and it was exceptional. The service is good, the portions are very generous and it has a good atmosphere in the restaurant. Really good food.
