The opening date came and went, this restaurant is not having any work done. It will not be opening anytime soon - if ever. The Facebook page is incorrect - honesty is always a good policy when informing people when a restaurant will open - or not.

The bar area is where you're initially seated, nicely decorated with great service. The restaurant has an equally warm feel, the Indian food is really good and presented and brought to you in a stylish manner. Recommended

We were a party of 4 and we're having a family meal. The food and service was excellent. The only slight disappointment was that the bill was quite high,but you get what you pay for I suppose. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Seven diners... More

Whether you order a takeaway or dine in the restaurant, the food is very tasty and good value for money. If you like a sweeter curry I can recommend the Murgher Tanger with mushroom pilau. We have been many many times and the staff are very friendly which makes us keep going back.
