Fantastic Service & Food from this restaurant! We've been many times since moving down to the area in September & absolutely love it here. The cosy carriages are really authentic & adds to the experience & the food has always been excellent. Gluten Free no...problem whatsoever in this restaurant so highly recommend for those even with coeliac disease. Super friendly service from Raj and he's staff everytime & the takeaway delivery system is excellent as you get to choose a time for delivery..& Yes it turned up 5 minutes earlier than the time ordered for so we were very impressed. This is our go to Indian restaurant now that we are local to the area...Give them a try whilst in lockdown!!More

We visited the restaurant last Saturday night as we were staying at Holborn Bashley. We love Indian cuisine and after reading the reviews, we were so looking forward to enjoying the food. The restaurant is decorated beautifully, but the food wasn’t fitting in with the...design. The rice was undercooked and crunchy, the food was very greasy and you could see the oil sitting on top of the food. Two of the party order madras’ (one chicken and one lamb) they both arrived different Colours ana flavours. The chicken madras has bones in. The onion Bhajhi were extremely greasy and didn’t taste right. The prawn dish arrived with only 3 prawns in it. The popadoms were nice and the selection of dips tasty just a shame the main dishes let the restaurant down.More

We ate in during the last night of our road trip. The decor is great and makes you feel as if you've stepped into another world. The gentleman that looked after us was incredibly polite! All curried are cooked fresh, the menu is expansive and...the food tasted lovely! I have a nut allergy and was able to safely enjoy a chicken tikka masala which is a rarity when I eat out. Great value for money too! Would definitely recommend a visit :)More

Was visiting this area whilst on holiday and visited this restaurant. As an Indian I find Indian restaurants can be a bit hit and miss but how lucky were we to find this place. The food was amazing and the young lad who took our...order was so courteous. The service was slow at times, but the food was worth the wait, I highly recommend itMore

Ordered late on a Monday night, absolutely excellent service from the staff! We made a mistake with our online order (which could have been prevented if we’d have just called up) and the staff called through to make sure it was correct, amended our order...and 20 minutes later we were able to collect. The portions were very generous! The food had lovely flavour, the chicken was perfectly cooked. Even the salad was really fresh! Perfect visit and we’ll be visiting again 😊More

Uncooked chicken and red inside, service was unpleasant and were not interested in making it better, very rude to my wife and was not a great experience for the kids. Never again!!

This restaurant is amazing food, fantastic service and I have been a frequent and regular customer for many years. However, myself and my husband agree with everything the previous poster has said about the parking situation. If the staff had only let us know there...was a parking system in operation we could of chosen to move our car. As it was, I stood my ground and fought Britannia Parking in Court and won my case. However it would of saved us over a year of hassle if the staff had only let us know. Ten o clock at night, in the winter hours of darkness with very badly situated signs meant we had no idea there was a parking limit in place. It seems the Raj have now listened to these complaints and they are now warning their customers but did not do this for us. Sadly we have also boycotted this restaurant not just for their lack of information but because there is no where to park now anyway. One star.More
