This is without a doubt the most fabulous Indian restaurant we have ever eaten. The decor is tasteful and modern, no normal "cheesy" Indian music to heard here but lovely traditional music with adds to the ambience. The staff are friendly and quick to take drink and food orders. The food is out of this world we decided to try... More

The food and the service are difficult to fault but the undisciplined small children detract from what could be a pleasant dining experience. I took the cowards route this time - I'd been beaten by a Madras being too hot last time so I chose the meat biriani. The flavours were exquisite and the serving sufficiently generous to provide today's... More

Booked table for 8pm arrived slightly before and was seated in bar area whilst table was prepared. Seated at table quickly and given menus. After 10 minutes waiter came and asked if we were ready for our main course. Explained we hadn't ordered anything yet. Order was taken. Food was very tasty but the wait between courses was very long,... More

We had been before last year so knew the food was good. This year however we had our 8 month old with us and I think the waiter who seated us was a bit unnerved by this. No high chair was offered so I don't think they usually cater for children? We were seated in the corner at the back... More

Another visit to this Indian restaurant. Pleasant ambience. Food is tasty and not over-priced. Generous portions. Takeaway service also available. Visited on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was surprisingly busy. Drinks are reasonably priced as well. Off road parking in a village setting. Good for groups of adults. British dishes also available for those with a less adventurous palate!
