We visited as a group of 5 having had a number of recommendations. The room was cold despite it not being freezing outside and despite the heating being on. We all sat with more clothes on than one would expect in a restaurant! Plates arrived - they were unheated. Food arrived - not very hot at all, tepid really- no... More

I visited just before Christmas with two friends and I can honestly say this was the nicest Indian main meal that I have ever eaten. For starter I had a sheesh kebab, my friend had onion baji and my other friend had a fish dish which was a local delicacy and was delicious. For a main meal I had a... More

Ate here with a friend a few weeks back for the first time. Had a lovely meal and the quality certainly matches that of Bradford, curry capital!

Very nice Indian, lovely food both in and as take away and very pleasant staff. The atmosphere and setting is great as it's in an old mill. Only downside is it's a little pricey. It wouldn't be a "can't be bothered to cook tea tonight" choice

Visited early on a Friday night. The food was beautifully presented, well cooked and delicious. I'm not an expert on Indian food but it was much better than any similar type restaurant I have been to in the middle of York. As other reviewers have stated, parking is easy and the circular restaurant being a old mill is circular with... More

Three of us visited without booking on a Tuesday evening, there was plenty of space (and, thankfully, this meant we could converse, as when the place is full it is very loud indeed due to the room shape providing very poor acoustics). The room is lovely (around the old windmill itself) and clean. The food was absolutely superb, really wonderful,... More

Whilst visiting friends we paid a visit to this lovely Indian restaurant which is set inside an old windmill. A Saturday night and people were waiting for tables. Luckily we had book and were immediately seated. The restaurant is spacious and simply laid out but everything is spotless. There is a good choice on the menu ( a good selection... More

A group of visited here recently. The food is lovely, a little pricey (£10.50 main course) but happy to pay for quality . The staff are so polite and lovely but service is slow - we booked our table for 730 and got our main course at 915. Worth the wait though for great food
