After reading mixed reviews on trip advisor, we decided to give it a go as we were staying in the area and arriving late we didn't want to start cooking. There were 3 of us so we ordered a chicken korma and a passanda with all the extras. When we got to the cottage ravenous we ate straight away so... More

We could not find anywhere else to eat as most places did not take orders after 8.00pm. But we're pleasantly suprised with the quality and volume of the several courses we had. The only critism I would have is initially we did not feel very welcome although the service was fine.

Eaten here since it opened many years. Service has gradually got worse. Now well below what is tolerable. Food average and can be hit and miss

This is a 'bring your own' restaurant which makes this a much more affordable evening out - with the benefit of being able to drink your favourite wine without paying a fortune for it! We decided we wanted to try something different to the usual curries we have. The staff were very helpful and informative and we were both delighted... More

Took my mum here for a meal last night as she lives locally. The food was excellent. The service was very good and came pretty quickly. All freshly cooked. Not short on portion sizes. It's not licensed so you can take your own at no extra charge. There is a co-op over the road so bought from there. We love... More

Went in a group of six to celebrate a family Birthday. No complaints at all everyone enjoyed the meal. The prawn tandoori masala was the nicest I have had. No licence but they are happy for you to take your own alcohol and provide glasses etc. Took a Birthday cake and they brought this out after the meal and even... More

Very authentic Asian cuisine. Having been a food critic for nearly 40 years, I can highly recommend this restaurant. Obviously one needs to choose wisely, but if in doubt ask the proprietor to cook you the same food that the staff will eat. You will be very pleasantly surprised!
