I often go there with family or a friend, who travels here from Stafford for the wonderful service and delicious food. It is one of very few places where vegetarians also get served fresh food which looks and tastes wonderful. Abbey and his team always welcome you warmly and he sometimes gets his chef to cook special vegetarian dishes which... More

I saw lots of positive reviews online for this place so decided to try it - a bit hesitant as most places are overrated and I would be taking the entire family along with some overseas relatives who are staying with us - some 15 odd people. The restaurant was easy to find - sticking the postcode into our TomTom... More

Both my friend from Liverpool and myself gave our meals top marks and the same went for the ambience and cleanliness of the premises. Abbey and his staff couldn't do enough for us and the fact that we took our own beer and wine meant our pockets were not drained. We'll be back!

First time here last weekend with a party of 24. Had a fab night - food fab, staff fab and bonus that you can take your own alcohol. Very reasonable prices especially with you not having to spend on drink. Would highly recommend it. Will be visiting again... Thanks for a great night!!!

Now visited several times and standards remain high. Abbey and his team are building this place into one of the best Indian restaurants in the area without a doubt. "Enter as strangers, leave as friends" it says in the reception area and on the website, and how true it is. Good food, good company! What more can you ask? Don... More

Whether you go as a couple or with friends the atmosphere and food are great, very friendly staff, excellent service. On the odd time we have had to wait a while when they are very busy but a small price to pay for a lovely evening.
