The service at this restaurant was fantastic. My husband had accidently left his wallet in our hotel room which we discovered when we first arrived at the restaurant. The owner insisted in running my husband back to the hotel to collect it. The hostess was wonderful, she went out of her way to help us and was so friendly not... More

The hotel owner recommended this restaurant for the lamb kebab and steam vegetables in which was reasonable and tasty... very friendly staff... but they close quite early......The restaurant setup was very attractive and very clean.

I briefly called into this restaurant whilst I was staying overnight at one of the nearby hotels. I had really delicious samosas, which were probably some of the best I have tasted. I ordered a vegetable korma and rice to follow, but was disappointed, I am sorry to say. It had very little flavour, and there seemed to be no... More

We were staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Restaurant and decided to have a wander around the local village. We discovered this Indian restaurant, it looked lovely with its Indian décor and was nearly full of people so we thought it must have great food. It certainly does have great food and the staff were great too. It is reasonably... More

We came here by accident when our flight was delayed. The staff were polite, meal was prompt and good. They offered a free desert with your main and a free pick up/ drop off from your hotel. Thanks for a pleasant meal and really appreciate the ride back.

Meal enjoyed by my sister, niece and her toddler. Good choice of entrees, mains & shared desert as there was not much space left. Chef's recommendation was appreciated.

We have now visited this restaurant twice. Both times we were welcomed by friendly staff. The food was reasonably priced and of a good standard. The free desert is only ice cream but what more do you want (need) after a good meal. We'll be back

Went their by accident searching for another restaurant, because road works going on there... Food didn't represent Indian taste or standards. Most of the food are pre cooked and warmed again. Not tasty inspite of the fact that we all were really hungry. Staff just k.. Prices appeared to be expensive..

Walked from the holiday inn (about 3 minutes) and were welcomed at the door. They offer a free desert if you dine in but it is only really icream. The food was pretty standard Indian but it was very slow service wise. We waited for ages - they seemed to spend more time on the takeaway customers meals then the... More
