Visited here for a work Brunch. Very impressed with the Punjabi/English twist. All of our food was of a very high standard and tasted amazing. Can't wait to try the Evening menu. Definitely worth a visit. Very reasonably priced considering everything is free range and...More

Completely different. Not a 'curry house' but genuine English influenced Punjabi food. We had very good samosas and pakoras, followed by pheasant and an odd but delicious sausage, egg and potato dish. The service is very friendly and helpful.

Our olde English sausage is 'odd but delicious' as it is a minimum of 85% meat,it is also a fusion dish that we grew up with,however, i'm delighted to hear that you were satisfied with your food!

Great British breakfast menu alongside a Punjabi breakfast menu. We had the Full English and it's now our favourite local breakfast cafe. Top quality ingredients cooked well and served by a really friendly family. Evening menu looks really interesting so we'll be back.More

Lovely family run Indian, full of heart! Best samosas I've ever had! Menu was traditional Indian and the owner was obviously really passionate about his food.

Thanks Matthew for such a good review, as we're a small independent business it does help a lot for my business. As we're from the North of Punjab our curries are more thicker and less watery. Thanks again!

My family and I are life long 'Bristolians' and more importantly 'Eastonians' and it is through this lens we aim to give back to the local community which has provided so much for me and my young family. We look forward to providing Easton, first of all with Punjabi cuisine with a unique British fusion flavour, and in time to come, the whole of Bristol and beyond. With over 20 years as a senior chef and extensive experience in the catering industry, I know this will show in my hospitality as well as the cuisine I provide for a great experience!
