The food is always good and we are regulars. However, almost all deliveries are incorrect, after waiting 1.5 hours there was missing items and incorrect food. Tonight's excuse was 'well it is Friday'! So although I recommend there food, do not order takeaway! Oh, and when it arrived it was also cold! Time to find somewhere new!

My food was faultless and was served quickly. Although I received a warm greeting on arrival, the waiter was not as friendly. Although the other waiters appeared attentive, mine did not smile at all. That said it was a lovely meal, good value for money. I would highly recommend it.

My wife and I went there for midweek lunch on 27/6/16. We arrived there around 1:30pm and the restaurant was empty. Had the curtains not been drawn over the windows, we would not have gone in, but once in the restaurant we decided to give it a try anyway. We ordered the 30 pounds set meal for two, and asked...

Takaway normally have no problem .although I dine in usually. Tarka Dall was thin and runny and had loads of very hot green chillies in it. Main meal didn't taste of much a lamb special but was very chewy. Next day I had the most awful tummy upset and was nauseous for days very dissppointed

2nd time I've visited in 3 months gourmet night is superb value and normal menu has some unique dishes. Service is a little haphazard too many staff not knowing what the other is doing seem very inexperienced.and all standing around together at front of house. Could be better.

Set in the Old Town this Indian restaurant is easily accessible either by foot, car or taxi. The High Street offers ample free (can be time limited depending on time of day) parking but obviously the later it gets the busier. The restaurant has a modern light finish with light colour decoration and wood flooring to the main area. The... More

I lived in Stevenage for seventeen years and this was the first time we went there for a night out. The ambience was OK, it was busy so a sign that this would be a good restaurant. There were five of us and we decided to choose the value meal of any starter, main dish, side order and nan bread... More

First visit in tears and loved it, great food good service. Returned following week, another great meal but sad to be asked for 50p to take home my leftovers (cold curry for breakfast... Go on, try it!). Returned two weeks later, empty restaurant, poor service, bad chicken... I don't know??? On the fence here, may or may not return.
