My wife and I and my sister and brother in law ate here on Sunday night. On arrival there was only one couple in so we were a tad worriied, but there was no need the owner was very nice and helpful,the food we had was two different lamb starters both lovely, my sis has chicken pakora ,which was cooked fresh , and it was lovely, i had a nice chana chat dish. Mains i had chicken malador (with spinach) it was delicious. Wife had a chicken dish too, she thot it was very nice, sister and brother in law both had kormas , and both said lovely. Overall very good fresh food, place is not on best location and restraunt was cold, but a nice meal was had.

“fabulous food - shame about the venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I picked up a deal for this on living social - two course meal for 4 - phoned to make a booking and when he didnt even take my name i was a bit concerned. On the Sunday evening, we were the only customers. The restaurant doesnt have a drinks licence which was disapointing for our husbands who like a beer with their curry. It was so cold in the place that the four of us opted for a seat by the radiator which I hugged all night. Its open plan but it really needs to be separated from the carry out section and the draft which blows through the door every time its opened. The food however was amazing and for that reason only, I would go back. The starters were mixed pakora with complimentary chicken chat in the chefs own sauce - yummy. All the curries came with rice and they were all to die for - nothing left and the peshweri nan was light crispy and so tasty. This could be a fantastic wee place if they sorted out the seating area and get a drinks licence - As a carryout place - its a hidden gem

“Fabulous HOT Curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

I went in for the first time after it has been recommended to me. I must admit I never really liked the look of it because the restaurant is quite basic ... Silly me the chef was so nice but even better I had a fantastic curry. I had the tomato paneer, so good. Thanks
