as a chef and lover of curry I can wholeheartedly state that I need look no further to satisfy my cravings for well cooked Indian cuisine. I throughly recommend both the house special and the Dhansak. very welcoming, pleasant and attentive staff, Hope to visit and enjoy a meal in the restaurant (rather than at home writing my menu) :)

Tried this Indian for the first time and really wish we hadn't. The food was so disappointing and had no flavour. The Saffron Bahar Special was anything but special. The sauce was thin and tasteless with big chunks of almost uncooked tomatoes and onions with a couple of pieces of chicken. The Okra was disgusting and we only had one... More

I took my girlfriend for a meal here as she had been looking forward to visiting this restaurant. Upon arrival the decor was a let down with seats in the waiting area looking very shoddy with rips and tears in them so not a good first impression. The food and service were ok but the atmosphere was very dull. The... More

I should preface this review by declaring a greater background and familiarity with Indian food than most (see personal profile for details), which might explain why I am often harder to impress than some who enthuse over fairly typical high street Indian restaurants.

Well, at last there is one to recommend. The decor and staff are very welcoming and the menu covers a wide range. It... More
