The Jaipur tiger prawns are amazing, and the chicken is excellent quality chicken breast. As well as the usual suspects on... More

This used to be quite a reliable restaurant, better than the average Indian.

That could have been a one-off, so we thought we would give them another chance. Judging by other recent... More

I felt obliged to write this as our last experience from here was terrible - big delay, and a rude reception when I phoned up to enquirer where our delivery was.

My first visit here and not sure if we will be rushing back. The restaurant wasn't busy at all, the staff were all friendly and the food was tasty but the service was very slow, the waiting staff appeared give us but no real organisation to who was doing what.
