Never a let down. Had a pretty heavy weekend and didn't eat much so absolutely nailed a madras - was much hotter to my frail state than usual. Loves it. Naans were hot and fluffy, special rice was a beast.

Arrived about 1830, and we're lucky to get a table. Service was quick, polite and efficient. Food was some of the best Indian curries I have tasted, would recommend all Asian cuisine lovers to visit here if they are in the locality. Scrumptious ( and the lamb Vindaloo was HOT)

This has to be the best Indian restaurant in the UK. Tonight's speciality was the Chefs Special Dupiaza. Hot but the most amazing flavours. The Soul Tree Shiraz was a great accompaniment.

We booked for 10 people on a busy evening being warned that there could be a wait. This proved to be wrong. The service was excellent the food top quality and we had a brilliant evening.
