This place never disappoints. We walked in at 9.45pm on a Wednesday and it was busy. This is deserved. They fitted us in upstairs. The service is quick and efficient. The food is delicious. We shared four different main courses and I couldn't chose a favourite. Thumbs up to the chef and whole team - a fantastic little curry house... More

I took my mum for a meal on Thursday evening, and we both agreed it was one of the best curries we'd had. We'd been here before when they first opened (many years ago now I know), but had never got round to going back. I'm so glad we did though. The service was excellent (not too slow and not... More

We popped in on Sunday evening for a take away. I ordered my meal without ghee and oli. I was advised that this will not be a problem. We were offered drinks while we waited and could sit at a table. We ate our food at home, and can honestly say that this was the best Indian food we have... More

Went expecting a great curry, but was sorely disappointed last night. Normally a fail safe, should have realised there was something wrong when the poppadoms were stale, we complained and got more stale poppadoms, just warmed up this time. Service was painfully slow, and when the curry finally arrived, the meat was scant, and the sauce was pretty much a... More

Chicken shashlick very poor quality of meat not good, dried up with lots of red colouring! Mint rattan very gloopy and artificial flavours, would not eat here again. The other thing where we almost walked out and wished we... More

Just come back from a very enjoyable meal here. Love Indian food but wife is not a fan so I can only indulge when away on business. Really spoilt for choice and it was good to see a wide range of dishes I hadn't seen before so plenty of opportunity to try something different. Lovely food, not disappointed. Very friendly... More

Honestly. I'm writing this while still eating. Incredible food and lovely staff. Mate is a pescetarian so we had prawns dishes and the prawns were massive! Will be back and recommend to anyone after a few drinks down the high street! Top notch.
