A delightful venue for a romantic couples night out or a group. The food was fresh, tastebud tantalisingly delicious! Service was good. We had lamb rogan josh and the chicken 65 Masala and butter naan. Tip : the Sweet potato chips as a shared starter were just right

Choose a favourite dish. Chapatis and very nice to have with rogan josh. Went with friends and they were able to accomodate us on a long table. Atmosphere and decore .. every relaxing ambiance. Parking in the street. We all came out together and so felt safe. Might be different if I came alone.

The service and presentation were excellent but I found the chicken kebab to be way too salty, and the mango lassi had no kick.

Popular place, great authentic food with good service. Not much parking available as it is in a popular shopping cafe area. Takeaway service is good too. Try the South Indian vegetarian dishes which are exceptional!

Order home delivery for the first time, our place is approx 7mins away from the restaurant. Ordered food at 615am, received at 745pm. App noted expected delivery at 7.05. Bread was obviously just wet and soggy after being in a hot box for so long. They need to work on their delivery service.

Interesting restaurant. Food is served in compressed paper plates/bowels. I am not certain of the justification but it would certainly cut down on the cleaning. The food is good quality and there is plenty of it - the servings are reasonably generous. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service is quite prompt - at least it has been... More
