Fancied an Indian meal and was lucky to find this Restaurant opened on Easter Monday. The restaurant was busy and we were very pleased to get a table but we had to wait over an hour for our orders to be tabled. The food was certainly worth the wait and all the feelings of exasperation evaporated. Great food and definitely... More

I went with my boyfriend, and I haven't had such bad Indian food in a long time. To start with, the restaurant was more than half-empty when we arrived, and they gave us a table in the middle of the room, with no privacy, despite about 8 or 9 better tables being available. The service was just too much, at... More

We were two families of 5 people and had gone there for dinner. The service was impeccable and the ambience was nice. They serve really tasty indian cuisine considering that the restaurant is in Europe. Also, they went out of their way to serve us the Indian fired rice with cumin seeds. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't... More

When we go to an indian place, we most often go Masala because the food is good. We had Pakoras (deep fried veggies) and Shami Kebab as a starter of which the veggies lacked a bit of taste. As our main course we had chicken tikka (highly recommend) and a dal tarka which was good. Together with 3 bottles of... More

The karahi chicken was 4 pieces of tandoori chicken with standard sauce poured ovef it.seems... More

Atrocious service on all accounts, accompanied by a noisy and cramped environment. The samosa starter was dry and stodgy and lacked sufficient chutney. The lamb curry took a considerable amount of time to arrive and then turned up semi-warm. The chicken tandoori was nice but lacked enough meat to warrant it a higher review. We checked the bill at the... More
