“Ignore the hype! ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Must be the worst Indian I have ever had, ignore the good reviews...
Chicken Korma taste of chicken soop, onion barji taste of deep fried oil. 100% avoid.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

I went on a Saturday night with 5 friends. This was my first visit and it was good to see the restaurant was busy. The service we received throughout a busy night was very good. My starter which was chicken shishlak was very good. It was spicy, big chunks of chicken and peppers served on a sizzling skillet. I had lamb rogan josh but I was disappointed with this. It wasn't very flavoursome and the meat wasn't that tender but ok. Overall we enjoyed our meal. To finish off a hot towel and a mint or choccy would have been nice but I would visit again.
