“Little more Spice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Called in just before Christmas so missed out on the usual early bird menu. The a la carte is pricey by local standards but the special Christmas version of the early bird was excellent value and the postions were generous. The poppadoms were so light and fesh and the dips great, lots of taste. Starters were good and mains tasty though I would have liked my jalfrezi with a little more chilli (I do have an asbestos palate though!) I have to confess to being spoilt when it comes to Indian food having enjoyed several trips to various parts of India and having lived near the curry mile in Manchester and been a regular at the iconic Akbars in the city. Service was friendly and the restaurant warm and welcoming. Well worth a return visit and certainly the best Inidan cuisine in the general area found to date.

“Thumbs up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

First visit to this restaurant, we had heard good reviews from friends and they weren't wrong. Atmosphere, staff and food were all very good it was however a little on the pricey side compared to your average similar establishment. Food was simple, tasty and it did what it said on the tin. Beer prices were the same as pub prices which pleased me. Toilets were nice and the whole restaurant was well presented and clean. Thumbs up! We will be back.

“Delicious food, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We've been to this restaurant quite a few times now and it never disappoints! There is a great choice of food on the menu and no matter what we order it's always delicious. There's a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant made even better by the manager and staff who are warm friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Great place to go as a couple, with friends or family.
