Cannot fault the food we had it was excellent. My only comment would be that I felt we were a little rushed with the food as though as soon as we had eaten and paid we had to be out. As it is not cheap I found this a little off putting as we had taken a party of 14... More

This is THE restaurant to visit if you like curry. The food is second to none and the service is excellent. The staff are happy to advise you on the food they provide and are very friendly.

Been here twice now for two different occasions. The decor and set up is very nice however it takes a little time for your eyes to adjust as it's quite dark. Great for family's too. Good range of dishes! The giant naan bread is so nice too!!

I recently visited with friends and family and found the food and service were fantastic. Drinks reasonably priced also. Staff could not do enough for you. Menu choice was extensive and again reasonably priced. Really enjoyed it.
