Recommended to try this place by owner of the B&B we were staying at. Great location & atmosphere. Service brillant, food lovely. A little on the pricey side but enjoyed the food & nothing was too much trouble, would definitely return.

Usual menu but some great choices on the Chefs signature dishes, the Nalli Gosht (lamb shank) was excellent - loads of tasty meat, The service was excellent and the staff very very friendly. It was a lovely relaxed meal in very nice surroundings.

Had many nice meals here previously. Service was very poor, couldn't get any more drinks, no check back - only 3 tables in total. Wine plonked on table, not even opened, was not what we ordered but waiter argued that it was - Pinot Grigio white ordered, served blush. Food is normally so nice, but on this occasion my fillet...

The food was bland and lacked the flavour you'd expect. The chilly chicken dish I ordered was billed as "spicy" with "fresh chillies" but had about as much spice as a plain cracker. I love hot food so this was disappointing! The dish my wife order had very little taste despite appearing visually to have the requisite ingredients! The two... More

Well, I have never, ever in my life had a chicken and ginger curry like it. It was refreshing, spicy, warm on the tongue and hot on the plate, absolutely fantastic. Exceedingly well presented, foreboding setting and such pleasant young staff.

We visited this restaurant after it was recommended to us, Lovely peaceful restaurant we were told and on first view that's what we got, some of the cliental were having a family party, which turned into one hell of a row, shame really because after they walked out it was a lovely atmosphere. The food was of good standard although... More

Lovely place to eat, although the only downside was it was Friday before Christmas and the place was crazy, so we had to remind the waiter to bring our wine!!! Service could have been a little better but it was recognised by staff and we were offered a complimentary glass of wine (in addition to the bottle!). Would definately go... More
