This Indian restaurant is always busy and looks lovely from the outside however I find you have to wait far too long between courses and the food is average for the price, I've never enjoyed a meal here as it's taken so long to arrive.

Our favourite Indian restaurant. 10 of us went on Friday eve. Fast food service, amazing food. Took them ages to produce a bill is the only negative and is why we marked service down. Must have taken them 25 minutes, had to chase it twice.

Lovely authentic Indian meal served by efficient and friendly staff. Quite a small and intimate restaurant but they accommodated us without pre booking

There's a really good selection of food and the quality is second to none. Often now have takeaways too and quality is just as good.

Waited 10 mins to be seated at a table for 2, waited an extra 30 mins and then finally managed to get someone's attention to order a drink, 'what would you want' was the response we got and before we could even tell him he walked away. At this point we got up and left. Terrible, won't bother to go... More

We called in early on a Saturday evening and was very quiet. Waited an absolute age for someone to ask if we wanted drinks and the waiter, eastern European, was so rude to my children. We then waited even longer for someone to take our food order and waited 40 minutes and still no food. We asked a waiter who... More

This is a very busy Restaurant but there are plenty of seating areas. Food is excellent. There is often a wait for food but it is very much worth it. Waiters are friendly and reasonably efficient. I enjoy their Chicken Madras and their naan bread is delicious. Not the cheapest Restaurant but it depends on what you prioritize.

Let me start by saying the food we had , apart from the bread, was very tasty. We ordered our starters and a bottle of wine and was impressed with what we got. This was our third time here and the first time we came we had an incident with ants coming out of our hot plate but choose to... More

I eat here most weeks. But never ever again. Have never been spoken to as rudely as the arrogant waiter spoke to me. Food is pretty good. But certain members of staff could do with remembering they are serving paying customer's.
