Attractive looking place .. nice interior..service ok. For starters I had a shish kebab which was very nice. For my main I had the chicken Naga Naga (they have 2x Naga on the menu) I could be a bit presumptuous in thinking a naga dish would be reasonably hot and tasty but it was a little bland and instantly forgettable.....

Went with a friend as had not been for a few years. Lovely inside and seated quickly. Order taken but drinks were a tad slow. Poppadoms and chutney tray fine. Main meals we both ordered were off the Elephant Specials page and were both very good. I had the Chiili coconut curry which was very nice indeed and not spicy... More

Today is our 26th Anniversary and we cycled the Preston Guildford Wheel and rather than having a takeaway, decided to eat in. Booked a last minute table with no problems and the food, as always, was fantastic. Although we didn't have a starter, there was still too much food, which as they also do takeaways, we brought home. Poppadoms, 2... More

We always enjoyed the food here but it had been a while since we'd been so ordered takeaway. Great food as always. The South Indian Murgi Balti is a favourite of mine. We'll be back

I cannot express how pleased I am with the food we have had this evening. Literally the best I have had in ages. Service friendly, good wine list. Strongly recommend for a visit. Early bird offers available, though we did not partake. Think it's 2 courses for £10.95 before 7.30?
