When I stated at Walsall during the recent business trip, one of my colleagues took me to this restaurant saying that it is nice and he was absolutely right! The food was nice and the service was excellent!!

Not that special, but it's ok.. Visited so many times, sometimes food is good sometimes bad. But service is good! Atmosphere is really good, have parking space outside of restaurant.

Discovered this place on Trip Advisor and couldn't have been more impressed. We are very fussy about our curry, but this restaurant lived up to the reviews - delicious food, generous portions, polite and friendly staff. Now definitely on our "food map" if we are in the area.

Drive past this all the time and decided to try last night, can honestly say the restaurant was spotless and staff couldn't do enough for us. Food was lovely and tasty and full of flavour, will certainly be going back :-)

We were staying at the Holiday Inn for a romantic break, and decided to cross the road for an Indian! We eat Indian regularly and love to try new places - but are also very fussy!!! We LOVED it! Everything was perfect! Service, food, drinks! All beautiful. Amazing flavours and piping hot food. Came out at a good time, waiting... More

I have eaten here several times now while staying at the Premier Inn next door. There is an excellent selection on the menu and the food is very nice. The service is very friendly and food served prompt. Excellent value for money. I look forward to many more visits.

I meet up with friends from the area quarterly and more often than not come to this restaurant. The staff are friendly and the service is excellent. We always sit for a long time chatting but we are never hurried along. The food is of an excellent quality and there is plenty of it.
