So, after being treated like a stray cat some time ago, I decided to give the place another try. The food has never been an issue, and indeed, it wasn't again this time. Once again the place is let down by service/attitude of staff. I placed my takeaway order and asked for a beer while I waited. The waiter responded... More

My husband and I arrived in Amersham after flying overnight from the U.S. and this was a convenient spot for our first dinner out. We were certainly jet lagged, but enjoyed the meal very much and look forward to going back on another occasion. Enjoyed Chicken Tikka Masala and Prawn Biryani. Limited beer and wine selections.

Ate here last nigh with a group of friends. I've eaten here before so I know the food is good but the service really lets it down. They also do a take away service which seemed to be their point of focus. numerous customers came and went with a constant stream of take away bags coming out of the kitchen.... More

This is a little gem of a curry house, perfect for a quick curry and a beer during the week with the family or a couple of mates. What you get is an extensive menu of delicious currys and sides, basic bar with a couple of decent wines and the usual beer suspects, and super-efficient no-frills service. Fine dining it's... More

We had a lovely meal here. The food was plentiful and for the amount of money we paid it was very reasonable! The only negative we had was the waiter service. We asked for a drink which took forever to arrive and we thought that one of the waiters was just trying to get us in and out as quickly... More

We have been a few times to this restaurant and each time it gets better. From fresh poppodoms to tender chicken dishes and rice it us hard to beat

Having eaten here a dozen times, it's always superb. Personal favourite is the Prawn Balti but every dish I have tried has been top drawer. The staff have been their for years and are all characters. This makes the place really special, particularly when compared to the proliferation of copycat chain restaurants on every high street. Keep it up! Although... More
