Came here for a curry after being recommended by more than one individual. The food was great a perfect portion for just fullness between us, would order 2 rices in the future as they were very small. Only down was the atmosphere in the upper eating area, no music which was abit odd but had a pleasant enough evening.

Excellent lunch here 2 courses £10.99 beautifully presented and not your typical Indian, nice music in the background and decoration very up to date, would defiantly recommend coming here for a meal.

Not the normal madras etc. But I must say we were pleasantly surprised when we got the food. My husband and friends had chicken dishes were were lovely I had a lamb dish... More

Walked in , seated quickly and promptly offered drinks. After a quick pint I ordered the large prawns which aren't cheap but God are they worth it :) . Substantial , flavoured perfectly and cooked exactly. The main was hot as asked for , rice good and the mint naan was a good twist. Supplemented the meal nicely Reasonably priced.... More

Work night out. Had heard that the food was amazing. Disappointed as I thought it was nothing special. Food was bland and tasteless.

My experience of this restaurant is clearly at odds with the majority of other contributors. The interior was quite pleasant, but I found the manager to be quite brusque. The main courses were over salted, something I have never experienced in an Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant before and the Tarka Dal was so salty it was inedible (we were not charged for... More
