Having just moved to the area, i found this beautiful Indian restaurant. Their dishes are just amazing. And their Chicken Ceylon sizzles on your tongue, its beautiful.. All the staff are attentive and friendly. Definitely deserves 10/10.

Last wednesday was the first meeting of our newly formed curry club and it did not dissapoint. The restaurant was cosy and the service was exceptional, with staff going out of their way to make our meal as enjoyable as possible. Food was tasty too!

I visited this place recently along with my wife and friends, as I was unfortunate enough to have been recommended the Taj Mahal. Having been to many Indian food restaurants across several countries, I am accustomed to the nice sub con hospitality, and was expecting a rather decent laid back experience with a friendly environment, and boy was I wrong....

I went there with a couple of friends on Sunday evening. I've known for years that this is a good quality restaurant for Indian food, but as a picky person and not a great fan of this type of food, I hadn't been before. The menu is extensive and I have to say, I really enjoyed the food. The service... More
