My sheek chicken starter was good and tasty. Chicken jalfrezi was okay, only because the chicken was pre-cooked strips sliced so it looked like a ready meal which is a diservice to a fine taste. Lots of onions but not one chilli pepper, a must...More

Stopped here for a quick meal before a concert. We chose it because it was close to the venue. Turned out to be worth the drive up from Kendal on its own. The service was excellent, including a consultation with the chef on spicing. The...More

Tonight was the first time I'd visited this restaurant, and I was a little apprehensive at first because I'm both vegetarian and can't stand spicey (hot) food. I ordered a Korma and the chef personally recommended a totally different dish. He made a brilliant job...More
