“Quality Indian dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Packed to the gills on a Saturday night. Not a problem! Amazing food, beautifully presented. Very attentive staff. Lovely atmosphere. We're planning our next visit and highly recommending to all! Can't wait for the Summer evenings as the outdoor area looks welcoming too.

“A great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Booked a table for a group of friends, over the week before the meal, some dropped out and others joined in. Every time I called to adjust the numbers, I was always met with a courteous response.
On the night 13 of us arrived and throughout the evening were kept supplied with food and drink, all to a very high standard. When ordering the food, Shad was extremely helpful by offering suggestions, all of which turned out to be excellent.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to everyone.

“Not an ordinary Curry house, that's for sure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We first visited "India cottage" a couple of years ago. So on a Saturday night we decided to revisit without a booking. The place was absolutely full. Yet we were able to return and an hour later we had a table ready. The ambience and atmosphere of the place is second to none for an indian meal. The specials are a delight. Ingredients are fresh, and imaginatively prepared. Such a warm and welcoming front of house. The Taka Taka (lamb dish) that I had was so full of flavour, and the portion size was ample. Pilau rice cooked extremely well. An accompanying plain nan beatifully cooked. Onion bahji as a starter, very tasty. Super.

“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Our first visit for a while but well worth it. Surprisingly busy on a cold January evening which is a mark of how good it is. Always friendly service and some interesting dishes on the menu.
