I'm a regular costumer here, the food is good. However, the only problem is the dry and rude staff. When I came in today I felt almost being asked to leave when I asked for a table, the waitress (male Indian on the 8th of January 2017 at 15:22 ) was rude as he didn't give me a menus he... More

It was a delight to eat for the first time in this lovely quirky restaurant. We were lucky enough to come across a table upstairs on New Year's Eve. The staff were friendly and made no errors with our orders. The décor is very suitable to the style of the food served. The fragrant chicken balti in particular was a... More

I absolutely love this place. Yea it's not posh, yea it's old and quirky. But the food is outstanding, the Dhansak here is just Devine, and goes beat paired with Peshwari Naan.

Enjoyed the food but when I walked in was only one table busy and I was located in a dirty table and it stayed dirty till I left. There was rice, hairs and sauce over the table cloth... disapointing 😔😔😔

The service is no way good at all , the staff are not polite and the wait for food is 45mins plus. when you ask for the bill you will have to wait and trying to get staff attention is next to...

Went there with a friends as had been to bars. And the service was shocking. Waiter had sat us down and took our drinks order. We were waiting 10 before other waiter had taken our food order. Which took its time. As receiving our food we were still waiting on drinks. We asked the waiter who had taken our drinks... More
