Came here for a meal a couple weeks or so ago the food is different than anywhere else in Blackburn in a good way my friends said it wasn't as good as usual but I thought it was good just not 5 stars but worth another visit maybe next time.

I am very sorry that you did not like the food, however, I would just like to reiterate that ALL our food is freshly prepared, i.e. we peel our own potatoes and roast them, they are not shop bought. Also the only dishes that contain all spice are the curries. Our chips are sprinkled with Tropical Seasoning. Many thanks More

This is a beautiful restaurant on the Leeds-Liverpool canal at Eanam Wharf, Blackburn. I've played the piano there which was played by the late Bobby Womack and I sometimes play guitar outside when I take a lady business friend to dinner with swans floating past. Life does not get better than that. I usually have the Oxtail Stew with butter... More

We all had the buffet, and all loved the different elements. Also some big eaters in our group and still ended up bringing a curry home as we were all done in after the first round of food
