This is without doubt the best Indian Restaurant in the district, Don't take my word for it, just try getting in without a booking on a Tuesday evening in January!! Superb, authentic dishes on a constantly revised menu. The service is first class and efficient and the bill at the end of the evening will not break the bank.

Didn't bother with starters just went for mains. I had Naga Lamb which I have never had before and it was lovely.... More

We tend to take anyone that is staying with us to this restaurant, as it's very good value and the staff are always very good. The food is always to a good standard for the price, and we've never regretted the choice. The decor is eccentric, which kind of adds to its charm. A good, standard choice.
