“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Me my boyfriend our friends and families come here all the time. We love it! Its my fave restaurant ever. So cheap for fabulous food! Always book a table as they get very very busy! Service can sometimes be slow but the quality and freshness is so worth it! the tapas dishes are amazing!!

“Absolute rubbish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Food is poor so is the service. The owner does not make an effort with diners and it takes ages to be served or even acknowledged. So many good options nearby please bear this in mind. It's too expensive. This was a great place when it first opened but the next generation have sadly ruined it. A real shame as we have dined there for many years and over time it has gone from bad to worse.

“This must be the best Indian in luton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

If you love real Indian food you must try this place. The food was fantastic and the service also. Don't expect the usual indian menu, this restaurant is far more adventurous. You must try the black lentil dal and I highly recommend the paneer Mongolian.

“The taste of the food was amazing and to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

We visited this restaurant based on its Trip Advisor rating. Wow it was so accurate. The flavour of the food was amazing. Just make sure you don't order too much out of your enthusiasm to try everything. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to try something a bit different but with fantastic flavours. Will return here every time I am in the area.
