My son recommended this restaurant as a good catch all for a group of people ageing 20 to 81. Not the easiest demographic to satisfy, but Indian/Pakistani restaurants are nearly always a good bet. First impressions were positive. Modern design with a big nod to the Railway refreshment rooms of the sub-continent. Our anticipation was heightened by a menu that... More

Discount offered for on-line reservations to celebrate 25 years. Probably the best Indian Restaurant on the mile. Punchy flavours, super fresh combinations make for a winning destination. Peter`s bread is the best ever.

Actually never tried a curry from here. I only go for the Indian Street food, such as your samosa chaat...pani puri etc. Literally some of the best if not the best Indian Street food out there in the north west. The service was quick and we were able to eat and enjoy our food. It wasn't planned to be a... More

Visited restaurant with family to celebrate a birthday. Food was wonderful and staff very tentative. It was the first time we had visited this restaurant and will definitely be returning. The atmosphere was just right and not too crowded. We had pre-booked and waiter reminded us about the discount we had entered on website when booking. Well worth the money.

Great food and Great atmosphere. Just writing a reply to Daniel E. Some customers are hard to please but if you're visiting every restaurant and and rating them 2 stars you will never come across a decent one for your snobbish attitude.

Quality food. Only one thing that's missing from the menu is a vindaloo but they do have a sort of replacement for this but it's not hot enough.

Went gunpowder chips which were the best tasting sweet potato fries I've ever had and the mixed meat grill, which was a lovely steaming hot mess of tandoori chicken, lamb chops & kebabs on a small naan bread. Get that naan bread out quick to avoid it getting soggy though. The poppadom starters with the 3 dipping sauces were amazing.... More
