We ate here last night...and awful is the only way to describe it. From start to finish it was a disaster...calling to book a table, they couldn't spell the name Paul, and got the phone number wrong twice. On arriving, there is still no staff to greet you, and we walked through the other diners to get to the bar.... More

From the moment we walked through the door, it was a disaster. A busy Friday night, waiters running all over the place with no idea of who was doing what. No table for 2, despite booking.

Very good service and mouth watering food, excellent host, even though we were a group of 30 people, i found the service was excellent and do not have to wait for long time. Waiters are polite and well dressed. Really impressed with cleanliness. Love the curry. Worth going there.

Came here for dinner alone and tried the lentil daal, naan, mixed grill, okra and some rice and the taste was fairly good. I felt like the spices were kicking in and it was a bit bland. Certainly a good option for the neighborhood but I would recommend they spice things up a bit.

Very disappointed that despite booking, a table was not available for us. They really need to up their game to ensure continued satisfied customers. The excuse that they are short of staff is irrelevant!!!!
