Very disappointed as I have not been here for several months and the last visit it was lovely. I am a vegetarian so I had the vegetable Biriani, came with an average veg sauce. My husband had the mixed grill which he enjoyed. The staff were not as pleasant as usual, they slouched across with our food, seemed to be... More

Really love a tasty tandoori chicken, first time here & was expecting something special. Honestly, I've had much better, should have been served sizzling on the platter, it was barely warm & quite a scratty portion to be frank. However, the chicken chaat starter was ok. Much better Indian cuisine closer to home.....

Try in vain to get a decent curry near Clitheroe I dare you... Just had a takeaway from here well last week and it was awful, no taste, no seasoning, typical one pot does all curry , certainly won't bother again

We dropped into this restaurant on spec on a Wednesday evening thinking that it might be empty. How wrong we were. Despite being packed (with a couple of large parties plus other diners) we didn't have to wait too long for a table. We both had the fish johl (one medium, one hot). This was delicious and fresh tasting, not... More

A great range of tasty indian food. Large car park. Well looked after by the waiter and other staff. Very clean, a cloakroom, a good atmosphere, will go again, good value.

A friendly welcome and an excellent meal with immaculate service. The serving staff coped most efficiently with a large party and were uncomplaining as we were the last table to, rather belatedly, leave. Very highly recommended.

I've been coming here off and on for years and went today. It's had numerous extensions and can get very busy. But is it any good? Well- I love my Indian food so am a out picky. On the food front it's ok- but the good doesn't sing like spicy food should- it's just ok. But look at the place-... More

Went here for a special birthday dinner with family and was not disappointed. I had been told this was a nice restaurant and it is. I thought the prices were very reasonable for the quality - mains around GBP 10 with starters around GBP 4-5 and bread and rice around GBP 2 There were 5 of us and we had... More

We ate as a couple and enjoyed our food very much. The service could have been better though. Our drinks were placed heavily on the table in the bar by a rather unfriendly female member of staff, who made no acknowledgement of us at all. The waiters were efficient but lacking much charm, except one much younger man, who seemed... More

Third visit last Wednesday, and exactly the same experience as the previous two visits - and one of those previous visits was on Father's Day when it was pretty much at capacity (the food did understandably take a little longer that day but still pretty reasonable). The food was delicious and served as soon as you would want it -... More
