After attending for a night out with my mother, I was very impressed with the quality of food and service! Ordered the butter chicken and lamb madras which we were both very satisfied with. Very polite staff always making sure everything was fine and if they could do more. Excellent food, excellent service!

This restaurant has a great variety of Indian food, I found the servings to be a large size, the naan bread was good, The curries had plenty of flavour. Service was ok , nothing special. The food is worth a visit.

This is a fantastic restaurant in a great location (opposite the river). The food is authentic and yummy. Try the Butter Chicken. If you like it "hot", they can do that for you.
