As one many Indian eateries in the city, this one is average. It's quite expensive but the fish curry is good, the aubergine dish is a little heavy on the oil

Had a lovely lunch here today. Very reasonable price wise. Food was first rate. Lots of vegetarian and vegan choices. Please note, lunch is cash only.

Wife and I had Business meeting with Gentleman coming from London. He suggested this place. Get starter, and main course. And of course Nan bread. Waitress was very helpful making sure we knew exactly what each dish was and how hot they would be on a spice level. Had the Chicken Tika Masla and as I thought it would be,... More

Working in the area and looking for some good food. Popped in via trip advisor and enjoyed a drink at the bar n my own and got chatting to another customer. Lovely food, great staff and as it turned out good company. Definitely to be recommended.

Table booked last minute for a group of almost 20 people and they were very welcoming. We went for a set menu starting with poppadoms and pickles and a selection of different dishes with rice and naans. Really enjoyable evening hosted by friendly staff with excellent food!

We had to remind the waiter that only one main meal had arrived and the other came 10 minutes later. Food was... More

Repeat visit. Had not been here for quite a long time. Was happy to find the food as good as I remembered. Happy to say that this is still one of the best curry restaurants I have been to.

Went here for a birthday meal and we surprised how good the food was. I had the chicken tikka starter and it was one of the best I've had. As I'm not a huge curry fan my expectations were not that high but I was really happy with how tasty the food was. A little on the expensive side but... More
