We have been going regularly to this restaurant for many years ever since it opened. We were there last Saturday evening and despite it being extremely busy, we had fast, efficient service. We also often use the takeaway service too. The food is delicious, very authentic, it is tasty and aromatic, and the servings are a very good size....more than... More

Had been recommended this place and went on a Thursday night with friends. We went for the Thursday night special. We had to ask about it as waiters never mentioned it. Food is average at best. My curry was a luminous red and probably could be seen from space and hardly any chicken in. They twice messed up my rice... More

I found this restaurant to be impersonal, loud and tightly packed together! They forgot one of our sides and we never saw another staff member until about 25 mins later. So thank you for my under filling meal! I will stick to the bay leaf!

Great restaurant with friendly staff. For starters their spiced lamb chops are fab.. Main courses are always ample, well tasty and well presented. Ideal for both business and pleasure. I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

We visited on New Years Eve and the food was amazing, so was the atmosphere. I have been eating there for 24 years, both sitting in and takeaway and I've never had a bad meal yet. I would recommend anyone to go.

We had our Christmas Party here (8 of us) and the atmosphere was great; the waiter service could not be faulted and no one had to wait for their food. The food arrived and was delicious, just as i had hoped. All the group finished there meals without a single complaint. I believe this is one of the best Indian... More

Been a visitor to LQ for many a year and I've never been let down. Great food and friendly staff. Many tasty dishes to choose from with a particularly lush madras. Fab Thursday night special with same dishes as a different night.

Never fails to impress with the variety and quality of food on offer, hence visiting whenever an Indian is on the horizon. Good location, staff are always very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.
