The restaurant was very busy when i went, which is a good sign that the food is good. And it was, a good varied menu. No draught beer though which was a pity. The waiters were efficient and food served promptly, including very large naan breads. Because it was so busy, it was very noisy and not a very intimate... More

Visit here regularly as part of the business meetings we have. Food is hit and miss and the service can be the same upstairs. Standards of dishes and service has gone down over the years.

I always visit this restaurant when working in Sheffield. The staff are very friendly, the food is fantastic and I would highly recommend the chefs challenge. The naan bread is huge, however I normally ask for a smaller kemma Nan. Prices are very reasonable, and often receive a complimentary coffee. I really can't recommend this restaurant enough.

The outside and area really let this great restaurant down. Once your in the decor and staff are fantastic. The food was good but I would have liked a little more meat in my curry

From the outside the place doesn't look appealing at all, but the food is very tasty. Visited here with my friends for a celebration meal and due to the candle lit interior I could barley see what was around me and neither could my friends. Due to the dull lighting, I walked out with a headache I haven't returned since.... More

We turned up on a Saturday night without having booked but were shown a table within 20 minutes. The restaurant was incredibly busy and rather loud but I think this is due to the size of it. Our dishes came promptly, were of a generous size and tasted delicious. My chickpea, potato and paneer balti was one of the best... More
