The only drawback was the wait for our food to be served. A large portion of the restaurants business is carryout and home delivery and this... read more

There's Indian Restaurants which create stunning gourmet Indian dishes each uniquely flavoured to express the best of real Indian cuisine. Then there's the basic Indian serving up slop which far too many Brits think is great food - Welcome to the Taj Mahal - certainly grouped into the slop category even though their advertising states "Quality without Compromise".

Lovely Indian Food - whether you like mild or spicy dishes. Garlic chili chicken very tasty and spicy. The nan bread very nice too. Been to this restaurant a number of times and always enjoyable. Nice pleasant staff too.

A group of 6 of us dined in tonight. The service was extremely poor and slow. We had to ask for more menus as only two was given out. Staff paid us no attention and we waited an hour before our dishes were served. I was abruptly corrected for pronouncing one of the dishes incorrectly. I don't mind being corrected... More

Typical small restaurant. Somewhat surprised when the waiter volunteered that we had received fresh popadoms and not stale ones! Not sure whether he was after a tip; but my tip to him would be to be a bit more respectful of newcomers. Food OK.

This friendly, family run restaurant has delicious, reasonably priced food, from a menu that is full of choice. the chefs are so accommodating, if you would like a dish slightly changed, they will do their best to please. The garlic chilli chicken is a personal family favourite as is the (not for the faint hearted) Ceylonese curry. I also love... More

Had dinner here with friends. Lovely Spanish wine. Really good variety of dips with the poppadoms. Totally awesome size of a naan bread. Portions of main courses are just the right size and very tasty. Waiters were very pleasant and attentive but not in your face all the time. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

We have used their take out several times which is excellent as well. The selection of food is excellent from mild to... More
