Good values, good taste.

Missing a spicy hit so went here, rather dubiously, but we were pleasantly surprised. Well priced, good taste and friendly staff. Sat upstairs, no air con so a tad warm. But well worth a visit.

not good, went in August as we fancied something different to the main restaurant offerings. We had a madras which was very tasty but was a tiny portion and the mushroom pilau was not good. The child's tikka masala and rice came on a plate and didn't look or taste very good . The adults chicken masala was awful, nothing... More

If you are used to good indian food you will be disappointed. We had the unfortunate experience of being served burnt na'ans, twice over. Ok that may be a one off unfortunate experience, but our party of 4 all found our food to be quite bland, which indian food, is not! The servers are pleasant and explained the chef's over... More

There were eight of ate there and only my daughter and myself really enjoyed our meal, a bit worrying when you are in an Indian restaurant and not an Indian in sight not even in the kitchen, but the service was good and as I say my meal was lovely

Had sheek kebab to start which had no flavour and on top of uncooked onions. Wife had prawn puree which was like slob on... More

I went here two days ago and it was okay. I have read reviews really having a go which I found quite unfounded. So the onion bhaji was like onion fried in flour well surprise surprise that is what one is. The set meal is great value and covers all types of Indian cuisine. More than enough for two people...

I was a little apprehensive before going because of all the negative reviews. We are Indians and we were missing our food in Cyprus. My husband insisted and thankfully we tried. The set menu was quite tasty - especially the potatoes, chicken rogan josh and tikka masala. I wouldn't say it was perfect but it was like nice oasis in... More

The service here was good and we were served pretty quickly. The sauces that came with the samosas were a little strange and certainly not authentic - a sweet chilli sauce which didn't taste great was one of the options, not sure of the other! The naan, rice and main dishes were of reasonable quality. No huge complaints, but felt... More
