“Absolutely first rate Indian food - a great asset for Stocksbridge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

For many years this venue was a rather rough pub called the Coach & Horses, but now has been tastefully refurbished into a stylish modern restaurant that is welcoming to all in a town that is very short of places for dining out in the evenings.

The interior is suprisingly spacious and uncluttered with generous size tables and stylish comfortable chairs.

The staff seem genuinely welcoming and friendly, but unobtrusive. The owners obviously pay much attention to detail - even the plates and cutlery enhance the presentation of the food, for a type of cusine that is often indifferently presented.

What sets this restaurant apart from its local competitors is its large range of dishes that I haven't come across elsewhere. I recommend ordering the main course from the 'village special' or 'chef's recommendations' sections of the menu.

I ordered Lamb Charga (curry with yoghurt & spices) which had huge chunks of meat and wasn't too rich. I also ordered lemon rice & saag aloo to accompany it. The food bill was around £13 per heat plus drinks which was excellent value in my opinion considering the quality of the food and service and generous portions. This restaurant also offers the food for takeaway at slightly cheaper prices.

My next visit will be to sample the Tuesday evening buffet which is £10.99 per person.

I visited on a Friday around 7.30, we were only people there at first, but by the time we left there were around 30 diners, excellent for a small, relatively rural venue.

“Great food and pleasant staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We visited with our friends who recommended it following a few visits. We had the
buffet option which is available on a tuesday night as it allowed us to try a few sample dishes we
wouldn't normally have gone for (at a great price). Every dish was lovely and full of flavour.
The staff were very pleasant and glad to advise us on what to choose.
Our friends have lived and travelled in Bangladesh and India and particularly rate the
standard of food!
We would definitely go back or order a takeaway from there!

“Excellent food and great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We decided to try this as a last minute change of plan and I am really glad we did. The food was delicious, lots of choice including some dishes I'd not seen before. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The only negative would be the decor is a little dated and the lighting was very bright for a restaurant setting but it certainly wouldn't stop me eating here again.

“Lovely Food at Excellent Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Went to this restaurant last Saturday for the first time. The menu has a lot of the usual favourites with a lot of new dishes to try. We all enjoyed our choices but my husband had the chicken livers to start and they were delicious. All the staff were attentive and friendly with quick service throughout.. Will we be back? - definitely!
