“Lovely food but slow and cold when we order takeaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We have ordered twice from here and despite the food being wonderful it always seems to take at least an hour and a quarter to reach us and the food is never as hot (heat) as it should be. I would recommend it as it is delicious and not swimming in oil like your average Indian. I have to admit to not having complained yet about the cold food as it's always been so good - I will be saying something before ordering next time though. I have heard that the restaurant is nice so might be worth visiting there too.

“will definately go again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Went here with work colleagues so mixed bunch of ages and tastes etc, 8 of us in all
I would not choose indian as a rule this was lovely food starters and mains everyone of liked our meals and no complaints at all. You do get very big portions so you might want to consider sharing some.
It is clean, nothing is too much trouble and not rushed very relaxed atmosphere and all our meals came at the same time.
Will definately go again.

“the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We've eaten in many curry houses and the food here is always up there with the best! Although not a flash location,once inside, the restaurant is very clean and cosy. Good service,polite and quick,and reasonable cost too!! Always a relaxed atmosphere, we always eat at our own pace, and never feel rushed to finish.If you love curry you will love it here.

“Good food but poor service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We were left standing at the door like idiots waiting to be seated. Waited forever to get drinks & food ordered. We were asked if we wanted poppadums while we waited for our food which came with a selection of chutney's/ sauces which I did not ask for but was added on the bill. The restaurant seemed a bit a bit chaotic, the staff were running around like headless chickens. The food was great but the service was poor, next time will get takeaway rather.

“5 star service, food and atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

This is one of the best tandoori restaurants I have ever had the pleasure to visit. The staff are very friendly, service is very prompt, but without being pushy. Prices are reasonable and the food is second to none - I will be coming back for sure. Well done.
