We visited the restaurant for dinner on Saturday. The food was quite good, but not the best Indian cuisine I have tasted. Far too much red colouring in the chicken tikka masala and also too much sauce; the rice seemed rather dry. Service was fairly efficient, but the waiter got one order wrong. Probably would not return.

Still the best Indian restaurant outside of London. Food is excellent & the service is very prompt & efficient. Best food to eat is the chilli king prawn dish with a garlic nan & the obligatory pint of cobra.

A repeat visit for us and it did not disappoint. I had a fantastic madras curry with naan and rice. It was hot enough to make my mouth sing but not scream. Very busy this time but there were enough staff to ensure that we did not go wanting. Recommended without question.

Great food and customer service so pleased to have a nice local curry house. A little on the pricey side but tasty treat.

Having ordered a King Prawn Biryani takeaway I had to phone the restaurant to say they had forgotten to put the King Prawns in. My husband went back to collect a replacement. It was then we discovered that King Prawn Biryani was actually a plain Biryani with one small KIng Prawn (or so it seemed) chopped up so small that... More

We ate here mainly because it was close to our hotel (it was raining) and the pub kitchen was closed. However, we were not disappointed as the food was very good.

I went in for an early evening meal and was very pleased. The service was good, the food was excellent and I think it was good value for money. Will definitely be going back
