We always go for a curry here when stopping over on business and have never had a bad experience. The food is good good with a decent size menu. They have license but you can also take your own beer apparently. If you like a decent curry and you're in the area give it a try.

Visited here for the first time to grab a takeaway. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food... It really was very good. Prices are also excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. I've never eaten in the restaurant but I'm sure it's just as good. Give it a go!

Saturday night and restaurant was busy and buzzy as you'd expect and happily managed to get a table without a reservation. Service was great, food nice, probably too many choices on the menu and decent value. Would I go again? Yes. Would it be my first choice Indian? Probably not.

Proceeded to restaurant given table at... More

Had dinner here last Saturday. A recommendation from a friend who lives in the area. Welcoming staff and a huge and varied menu of both standard tandoori and curry dishes, with more unusual house specialities developed by the chef. The food was delicious, I really enjoyed my sizzling lamb kebab with onions and peppers, served with a nice salad. Side... More

We have been here many times and the food is good. Service is good, would recommend having a takeaway over eating in, as the food can take a long time to come.

The staff were friendly. When we arrived the restaurant was empty and eerily quiet which was a bit awkward, was 3 staff at the bar area talking which is fine but a bit uncomfortable they kept looking over all the time. Once more customers came it was a bit more relaxed. Food was ok nothing to rave about. Had the... More

We called here mid week for an evening meal and were pleasantly surprised. The food was really good and the portions were very generous. The service was quite quick and friendly. Extensive menu with plenty of choice especially for vegetarians. The monk fish looked good but we had the special balti which was excellent.
