A truly superb dining experience

We have dined here before, and found the food and service first-class, which is why we return. I cannot believe that the food gets better and better each time. Brilliant friendly staff as well. Thanks, we will be back (as Arnie says)

Good food, but slow service. The waiters don't seem to be interested in keeping an eye on you. The food was excellent, a little on the spicy side when we asked for it to be medium. But it was fresh and hot.

We have visited this restaurant on average about every 2 weeks for over 20 years and have never ever been disappointed. Friendly staff and always welcoming, no matter how busy the place is; the decor is spotless and modern. Beer is always ice cold and a perfect accompaniment to very good food. A special favourite is a starter of Kandahar... More

Delicious food and great service. We often go on a Thursday for the £12.95 special. Poppadoms, starter, main course and rice, glass of wine and then ice cream. Excellent value. Last night I had Sag King Prawns (Prawns and spinach). They were delicious and part of the special even though the regular price is £11.95! I got about 7 king... More

My partner and I eat here almost every week, the service is consistently excellent even when they are really busy and the food quality is without question first class. I can recommend the Lamb Pasanda and the Naan breads are gorgeous. Ideal for couples or larger parties and children are welcomed. Yes it can sometimes get noisy but join in... More

This is our favourite local Indian Restaurant - the food is great and the place is really clean and welcoming. My husband has been in the kitchen (as he was doing some work there) and he says the kitchen is immaculate. Good to know if you are eating there regularly. The lunchtime special menu is particularly good value.

Gave this place another go as I thought that I was being harsh with my first poor review. The food is bland and boring. We had four different meals and they all tasted the same. That's it for me I'm afraid. I've tasted better from a pataks jar

Been here lots of time ;) not that we are greedy much. Always great service, May be slow at busy times but well worth the wait. Food is really delicious.

We were here to celebrate a double birthday and we had a superb night. Food and service was excellent and our party of 14 had a great night. The only negative was a rude couple sat a few tables away who felt the need to stare at us and were clearly offended that we were enjoying ourselves. Her sour face... More
