Been wanting to visit this restaurant for quite some time. To avoid the busyness, we booked a table for 7:00pm. When we got there we was the only people there (great). Ordered a starter & main meal. Had a platter for two. That was lovely....Poppadoms was fresh & crispy. Husband’s Main course - chicken Tikka Masala which was absolutely Yummy and full of flavour. Nan Bread was okay, so was the Pilau Rice. I had chickpeas and spinach. This was a little dry & lacked certain spices and flavours. The pilau rice was fine, garlic bread was dry and the bread was a tad flaky. Portions was a little small. But overall. Table service was good. Staff are hospitable. The restaurant did get immensely busy, as we was about to leave and unless I missed it - staff did not encourage people to scan the barcode for “track & trace” Nevertheless, I would visit again or do a take away!!!More

My favourite local Indian! We’ve been twice in the last month and can’t fault it! Delicious food and staff are so friendly! So filling I’ll be having left overs for lunch today! Some of the best naan bread too! Chicken Makhani & Veg Korma are...so good 😍More

The restaurant is okay, they have a good atmosphere its lively for a Friday night. The portions are quite small, food is okay but nothing out of the ordinary - modest about the restaurant.

Booked and called to confirm. Got there stood outside for 40 mins with no explanation, no table and no food. Went home. Based on some of these reviews maybe we got lucky!

They completely messed up their booking system so we didn’t get seated for over an hour. Food tasted like it all came out of frozen bag—. Awful, avoid at all costs!
