Was good

This was our favorite Indian restaurant but our last visit was a disappointment. Meals still taste great but the amount of meat is lacking. I don't like paying for the sauce. Surely a bit if extra chicken or lamb isn't that expensive. Take away meals are even worse mostly sauce.

My wife and I dined here. My Vindaloo was bland and our shami kebab starter was burned. We mentioned that to the wait staff who really didn't see it as an issue. Unless you are starving and every where else is full or closed save your money. Martin

Got take away from here for a group of four. Ordered two sets of entrees and three mains. More than enough. All of the curries were really good (butter chicken, rogan josh & one other). Will definitely return.

Under new management. The food is so stock standard, they are relying on cream and sugar for flavour. The food is fatty and not authentic Indian by any stretch of the imagination. The meat is thin on, just lots of sauce. They always stuff our orders up. Sorry but will be voting with our feet, can't keep making excuses for... More

The sign on the front window proclaimed that it was "under new management" and according to the staff we spoke to this change had occurred the previous week. There may have been a few teething problems (or staffing issues) on the night we visited as the front of house appeared... More

In town for a couple of days and looking for good food and good service and we found a restaurant by far equal to many highly patronised big city establishments. The staff were friendly and attentive with good advice and the food was very tasteful, plenty of flavor and very generous.
