Went for a birthday meal. The food took literally 2 hours to arrive. When asked whether we could have some money off we were just told the reason was the chef had a headache.... No discount was offered...

Visited last night and the food was just amazing. All six of us agreed that the Peshwari naan was the best we've had! A decent sized menu with lots of choice, including Red Snapper fish dishes for those who want to try something a little different! The lamb dishes we had were all incredible! All of the staff are incredibly... More

Above average Indian/Pakistani food, with very attentive service and a very good price. The manger wanted feedback on the peshwari nan I had, as they'd just changed the recipe to be slightly thicker bread with much more filling - it was excellent, one of the best I've had anywhere. The main courses were very tasty and were offered with a... More

You have the chance to try quiet a few dishes as the reasonable portions come with a great price. Great selection of choices, everything we tried was very tasty and the gentlemen serving us was also really kind a kept himself busy all the way long we were there. You can bring your own drink here which is great touch!... More

Been here a lot (a LOT!!), used to live round the corner and still come in from out of town for their food. It is exceptional. Starters are amazing; Snapper Pakoora is the best starter I've ever had at an Indian. Mains, while being on the hot side (I prefer medium) are so, so good: lots of flavour, fresh ingredients...

Came here as a group of 7 with my friends and boyfriend. We don't go out for meals much as a group because it's expensive, so we can't fault the great student deal these guys have! I can't remember the exact details but think we got poppadums & dips, any curry, pilau rice and naan for £10. Very impressed by... More

Good food, nice people. We were in a big group but they accommodated us well. They also let you split the bill from the start which saves a lot of hassle. See you soon!

I ended up there for a birthday dinner a year ago and since then I've only ever ordered take-away from there. The food is exceptional, always really fresh and tasty! Last night went with a friend for a quick bite and, of course, the food was delightful - she had a Korma and I have a Madras, both great tasting... More
