A nice calming environment and atmosphere where the staff looked after you like royalty.
They answered questions raised politely and with great knowledge of ingredients.
Food was presented beautifully and tasted great,

“Nice location, lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

I have reviewed this restaurant before, but I felt compelled to do so again as last week I went to an Indian restaurant voted in the top 10 Indian restaurants in the UK, and it was nowhere near as good as this restaurant. The surroundings are beautiful, the service was friendly and attentive, and the food was first class. What a pity some of those who reviewed the other restaurant so highly haven't tried this place. It is superb.

Hello SDM Kent,

Thank you for reviewing us again, we appreciate it. Wow, we are grateful that you rate us a top Indian restaurant over an actual top Indian restaurant in the UK.

We were voted best newcomer at the British Curry Awards 2013 and we hope our guests do see us as a top Indian restaurant. We have created a restaurant that offers the ultimate in fine Indian dining.

We hope to see you again very soon, please do come and say hello on your next visit.

Regards
Shampan at the Spinning Wheel

“Nice but pricy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

It certainly is a fine dining restaurant in terms of decor and welcome. The food is nice but you do pay for it. The staff seemed friendly and wanting you to be happy, thought not attentive re offering drinks or even deserts. We particularly enjoyed the sweeping up around us: it was only half ten on a Friday! Not sure this justified the 12.5 percent automatic service charge. We felt it was expensive but it is certainly a more glamorous curry experience ....

“Absolutely Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This restaurant was fantastic! The first time I have been to one of them - the décor was beautiful with the waitresses in traditional dress, food amazing and service faultless.
We arranged a family reunion party for around 50 of us and instantly were given the conference suite where we wanted for nothing - staff were polite and friendly and were great with the children.
Thank you so much for an extremely memorable day! We will be back!

“GREAT RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Booked a table last Saturday evening, arrived to find large car park almost full which caused us to feel apprehensive regarding level of service and quality of food, as this restaurant can hold a lot of people. What an absolute pleasure to find that the service was as usual friendly and efficient and the food up to the usual high standard. More than sufficient staff to cope with the high level of diners and a wedding reception in another area. We were advised that they had in excess of 300 people that evening. Congratulations to the Management and staff. Great buzzy atmosphere, food as usual excellent - could not fault. Great recipie for success - long may it continue
