Sunday Buffet

As with other reviewers takeaway service can be a bit slow on busy evenings and can be frustrating. However I would highly recommend eating in and in particular their Sunday buffet. £10 a head with a great selection of starters, breads and curries. Good quality food and attentive service from the... read more

The food was delicious. The stopped at this restaurant quite late one evening. The waiter was very professional and friendly. We were pleasantly surprised my the quality of the food. The curries were tasty and the spices where intense and full of flavour. The cook in this restaurant really knows his spices and it was a great change compare to... More

Was really impressed, went here last night and took my mother. I took a chance because my Mum is Asian and so she is very fussy about Indian food. She enjoyed the many dishes we ordered and so did I. The waiter was also very helpful. Good for a decent meal in a nice setting for cheap.

The last two occasions we've ordered food for delivery from this restaurant have been a huge disappointment. The food may be quite good but when it arrives barely warm and the order is incorrect in more than one detail what can one do but discontinue. All we ask is a reliable, local Indian restaurant that can guarantee relatively fast delivery,... More

I am not a expert on Indian Food but the Lamb Biriyani was brilliant, the Chicken Korma was very rich but all the Food and Service was excellent. We will definately return. Thanks Russell for your...

We have used this restaurants delivery service over the years and it used to be really good but the last 3-4 deliveries over last 4 months have been very uninspiring, luke warm and taken over 1 hour to reach us. Chefs change regularly and I suggest that consideration is given to changing the Chef again. I like to support local... More

I've given one star only because there is no option for zero, the customer service and general running is like a bunch of 5 year olds running a business. I waited more than two hours for my over charged meal which was cold. The manager tried to make amends by providing a replacement meal a few days after which, shockingly... More

I was excited by the range of veggie options & had read largely good reviews but was disappointed on arrival. The delivery was 1/2 an hour late - given we're not that near the restaurant they should have estimated longer. All 3 dishes were excessively oily. The paneer was well cooked but was swimming in oil. The baigan & okra... More

From the service - waited 2 hours - to the customer service; which was terrible and rude, at the end the food was just disappointing. We never thought the food could be this bad!!! Overall I don't recommend and I will not return again.
