“Great food. OK service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Been here a few times now and the food is excellent. Sometimes, especially when really busy, you can wait a long time for your food but it's worth it when it does arrive. Try the Lamb Padina which is delicious.

“They always say "Don't try to repeat a success"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We visited this restaurant approximately 7 years ago and really enjoyed the total experience, we recently visited again just a few days ago and again the food, service and location lived up to expectations. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to repeat visit on Monday 28 the July and can only say that the experience was such that we will probably never return.
This is a real shame as the food was top quality but that was where it ended, the waiting staff were so unfriendly to the point of being quite rude. The bottle of wine presented couldn't be opened and this happened to be the last bottle (house wine), they had no bottles of cider and although they wrote down the order they still got it wrong. They did realise we weren't too pleased at the poor service but did nothing about it, on presenting the bill we asked for the 10% service charge to be removed and again they just did it but didn't ask why.
If you like good Indian food this is a great venue but if you want to guarantee a total special experience I would go elsewhere. Go here at the risk of being insulted or at least encountering extremely rude and apathetic staff. A real shame as the food was really good, we always tip for great service and often more than 10%, possibly the reason why the service charge is added is that they know they wouldn't get anywhere near 10% tips.
Lots of potential if only they could deliver.

“Simply one of the best Indian Restaurants that I have ever eaten in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Try their fish dishes, excellent. The only criticism is that the Naan could have been a bit thicker.

“Pretty good food but not good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Apart from chewy popadoms, food here was very good, with generous portions and well spiced curries. Service also attentive, but they lose a star for price - well over £30 per head...
