Been here a few times now and never disappointed. Altho service can sometimes be a bit slow the food makes up for it. The team are friendly and polite which makes the evening even better. Keep up the good work

Visited as part of a large group on business. There were 16 of us all together visited, whilst busy the team ensured we were looked after upon arrival and got to our table within 10 minutes. The menu is extensive with many of the usual Indian dishes represented, however, they claim to make anything you want you just have to... More

Had a bhuna which was undoubtedly the worst curry i've had the displeasure of eating. Watery, horrible chicken if thats what it was and tasteless, everyone else food came out before mine and i had to chase the waiter, wish i hadn't bothered. Staff seem more interested in pushing drinks, especially for large groups such as ours. Won't be returning.

Popped in for an evening meal whilst staying in Harrogate. Had a lovely meal. The food was tasty and nicely cooked. The service was excellent and the place was very busy for a Monday, which says a lot about a restaurant! Recommended!

Well firstly we have to comment on the decor, it can only be described as a feast for the eyes. Sometimes you didn't know what you were looking at but you couldn't help yourself. The staff were just as entertaining as the decor and were attentive and friendly. The curries were lovely with interesting flavours, the Peshwari naan was excellent... More
