“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We go to this Restaurant on a regular basis - and if we cannot go physically we get a carry out.
My husband always picks the same thing with a slight deviation once in a blue moon.

The service and food is above excellent. The staff make you welcome from the minute you enter the restaurant and can't do enough to make your visit worth while.

The food especially the Sizzlers i.e. Chicken Tikka, Chicken Tandoori and Prawn Shaslik (which is not on the menu but my friend gets this no problem) are delicious and very dramatic when they are presented at the table.

The best thing is the bill which is always detailed and inexpensive.

I would thoroughly recommend a visit to this restaurant. You will definitely want to go back.

“Top Class as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Sunday lunch buffet, only £5.95 per person for all you can eat. It's brilliant! Quite busy and there were a few queues for the food at certain times but nothing too drastic. The food was getting replenished quite frequently too.
A great selection of starters, veg pakora, bombay bread, saag aloo, chicken pakora, poppadoms, pickles, salad, egg mayo, spicy onions, tandoori chicken etc, something for everyone. Lots of main courses too,(including a vegetarian option),the meat options ranging from mild chicken tikka korma to dopiaza, and chilli tikka masala chicken. The lamb curries are beautiful too, no fat or gristle or anything, just lean and tender lamb. Plain naan, spicy naan, garlic naan, boiled rice, pilau rice, Oh, and there's chips and sausages and baked beans for those people who haven't figured out yet that they're in an Indian restaurant.
