I had a Jalfrezi with chips (not a rice lover) but the Jalfrezi is supposed to be flavourful with the peppers, onions etc but the sauce just overtook it and that was all I could taste a hot sauce with no flavour. That sounds odd but if you eat Indian food a lot, it should have the flavours not just... More

This place was quite nice. I chose to have the chicken tikka masala. It was quite spicy but pretty tasty. A part of the naan was brick hard but apart from that I cannot fault it. Service was good too - very attentive.

Was great to see a new menu. The one before was definately limited for me. This ones a bit more out there, especially for the coming winter months approaching. When I arrived I thought I was going to be stuck with the usual burger and chips, then I realised it was a new menu, with a much better choice, and... More

Dark wood furnishings abound, sports TVs in every nook, uninspiring beer selection. It was conveniently located, ample parking, and 2 for 1 grill night meant the unimaginative meat mound was good value. As were the puds. It filled a hole... enough said.
