We went before 7 o'clock on the Saturday of the August Bank holiday and the restaurant was really busy even so early. The staff managed to find us a table for two without a reservation. However it took over half an hour to get drinks which we had to order twice. The food was excellent with generous but not overwhelming... More

The title sums it up really. The interior is like walking back into the 1970's, a 1970's Bedouin tent to be precise. The place desperately needs updating. However, back to the food. Shown to our table and left with some nicely laminated menus. Left for a fairly considerable length of time before being asked for a drinks order. Drinks arrived,... More

My family and I were starving so at the time being narrow sighted rushed in for what we thought would be a Exquisite meal . Only when we sat down and settled did... More

After ordering, our soft drinks arrived and the cola was flat and cheap. During the meal we found what looked like a plastic bristle from a basting brush in the rice, we complained and was told we could have a replacement to which we declined. Then we found what appeared to be a red strand from an onion sack in... More

We opted for a takeaway and food was excellent. Glad we opted for a takeaway as the restaurant decor badly needs updating.

Table booked for 8.30. On arrival was told to go away and come back later as they weren't ready! We asked what time and were told "we don't know, just later". When we did go back, we had to wait 2 hours for our food to arrive, we also ordered a bottle of wine which was totally undrinkable! We complained... More

The restaurant is dark and dingey, with old, dated furniture. The food itself was average, but edible.

We ordered a takeaway from here, the starters we got we literally swimming in oil and grease, we were spooning out the grease and throwing it away! I then started eating my vegetable korma and found a lump of chicken!! I've been veggie all my life so this was a horrific experience. We where camping at the time with no... More

Curry so hot it hurts to eat it but somehow tasteless at the same time. Seemingly the curries are made with frozen diced veg and extra extra (extra?) strong chili powder as the only two ingredients. Maybe that's unfair, they probably added a bit of veg oil. Also, my son noticed they only have a good hygiene rating of 1... More
