The sauces were ok, watery but the flavour was ok. Is there a need for the sauce to be thin? The meat was ok, well cooked and tasty.

Food slow to come and uninteresting when it did. Chicken dahnsak with a bland lentil sauce and little chicken. Nan breads were however good. Service average with staff verging on offhand. Lot of money for average food. Asda ready meal curries are better!!

Ate at this tandoori on a weekend with my partner in Carlisle. A little out of town but well worth the walk. Full of locals which is always a good sign. Reasonably priced, clean and the Sashlik is to die for. Recommended to us by Roy at the Marlborough.
