“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

After reading all the excellant reviews about this restaurant i dont really know what went wrong with our visit. My husband took me for a meal for my birthday on saturday night, we arrived about 11-30 pm, on arriving we were rushed to our table, given the menu and then had it snatched out of my hand after
ordering our meal. my husband ordered half a tandori chicken on the bone but it was the size of a sparrow and my meat madras had four pieces of meat in it. We have never felt so rushed in our life maybe it was our fault for being late, but the restaurant states it is open until midnight.
One good thing was that we enjoyed our nan bread but would'nt visit again sorry.

“best in area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

My wife and I have been going regularly to this restaurant for over twenty years and have always found it to be excellent. Over the years I think we have tried every Indian restaurant in the area as well as the usual Italian, Mexican etc. and of course lots of pubs. Take my word for it, this is the best in the area. The staff are always very friendly including the owners sons, the food is consistently spot on and the place is very clean and comfortable. When i think of the starter and main course (try the chicken achar which I can really recommend) plus a drink each for not a lot more than thirty pounds and I think of some of the overcooked swill served at an inflated price which is offered in some places then I cant understand why the place is often empty. Try it you wont be disappointed.
