“Food okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

I ordered a chicken korma, not what i was expecting, but still tasted quite nice.
The staff were very slow when it came to the drinks order, but the food came out in a decent time.
I would go back again.

“Stylish with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

A beautifuly styled restaurant on the new marina, I found the service here good but my food was a little underspiced. a former review here is correct that descibed the onion baji's as basically onion rings. I had chicken tikka massala which was nice but for me it was underspiced (even though I don't like hot food), it was just chicken in a tomato based sauce. If I was to visit again I would certainly ask for the spices to be taken up a gear.
I had a good evening here with friends and would come again, but I would make sure I chose the hotter options on the menu

“OK food & service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

Nothing special & not as good an Indian as the UK or other places abroad. But food was ok, not great.Service was ok but not great. I came here 18 months ago & I agree with the comments elsewhere, it has gone downhill since then.
