Good but could be better....

Ate here last Friday. The restaurant was quite full and the tables were very close together i.e. couldn't pull a chair out to sit. The drinks prices weren't on the menu and are £4.50 a bottle (Kingfisher) but they are pint bottles. I also couldn't see the price of the popadoms and pickle advertised... read more

Dining with friends and had a lovely meal. Lamb Rhogan Josh for me and it was lovely!! Nicely done naan and the usual offerings with the poppadoms, not the cheapest but probably one the best rhogans I've had.

This is one of the best Indian restaurants and takeaways in Derbyshire in our opinion. None of this daft multi coloured rice - the pilau itself is an authentic delight, The Garlic Chilli Chicken is highly spiced - blooming lovely! Their Bhuna is rich but not too heavy and its fresh garlic - not old and reheated. Definitely recommend this... More

We had been to the balti in the past so opted to have a take away as a treat. Poor choice as the chicken korma was awful - same colour as the rice and tasted like chicken boiled in milk. The bhuna was so bland, it's tasted like there was no seasoning or spices. Sorry but we won't be going... More

Popped in here on our first night on the recommendation of Chris at the Hodgkinson's Hotel where we were staying. Food and service both brilliant - especially the grilled starters. Keep up the good work guys!

Really tasty food, not too hot but lots of flavour. They understood my food allergy issues. Would give 5 stars apart from the cost, very expensive

No parking other than local council car park which is expensive for what it is. Around £1.20 for an hour. Food ok but have had some dishes that were poor, at the same time as having excellent dishes. Feels very crammed inside, shoulder to shoulder, not alot of room.

I really can't understand all the great reviews for this place. Myself and my wife were struggling to find somewhere to eat and after reading all the great reviews we decided to give it a go. I had the Lamb Rogan Josh and my wife had the Chicken Sagg both were terrible and expensive, hardly any spiced flavourings at all,... More
