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

Really low quality/price as I found it expensive for the type of foos they delivered. All was greasy and there was not meat enough on the plates. The waiting time was almost one hour for the starters

The food served at this restaurant is incredible, amazing taste and good portion size and for a great cost. I was shocked to see such a cheap bill considering I couldn't finish my food. This BYOB restaurant never fails to let me down and this is my go to India. The staff are very lovely and the owner is friendly... More

Four of us came in for dinner on a grim grey "summers" evening. We had the BEST MEAL. popadoms and pickles and onion Baji to start, all spot on. We then shared lamb tikka balti, lamb tikka madrass, veg jalfrezi, bombay aloo, dhal with spinach and a garlic and peshwari naan. Everything was incredibly delicious. More than enough food for...
