Went here for a meal on 30/09/2013.

We were driving home and decided to stop for dinner here so arrived just after their opening time (6pm) therefore the restaurant was very quiet (may also have been because it was a Monday evening!). The inside is very nicely decorated, clean etc - giving a welcoming and pleasant environment.

We perused the menu outside, which looked delicious and although slightly more expensive than our local Indian, still fairly priced.
When we were seated we were given a set menu to choose from not the menu on display outside the restaurant, despite asking whether there were any extra dishes we could order our waiter just kept telling us it was 'set menu'. This was not really a problem as the dishes we chose were delicious and well cooked but we were only given a choice of rice OR naan - not the option to have both and pay extra.

However despite the limited choice for our meals, it was very nicely cooked and cheaper than we had expected (most probably because of the set menu price), although it would have been nice to order extra side dishes.

Overall, a nice restaurant that was a pleasant change from our usual but it is slightly let down due to the fact it has no car park and in future I think I'll be sticking locally.

We have dined here many times and had take-outs, the quality if food and presentation is the same for both. The menu variety is good, very tasty and staff friendly and attentive. More expensive than others in the area, but worth it.

Have dined in the restaurant many times I find the staff very attentive and polite very good service, the food in the restaurant is always of a high standard .we quite often have takeaways and they are always of good quality and on time although you can get slightly cheaper elsewhere it is convenient for villagers .

I had arranged a group gathering for my 30th with all my close friends and family. They were very hospitable and provided excellent service meeting the demands of a very big group. Food was very authentic and the owner was kind enough to help us choose the right dishes for my young children. will certainly recommend to anyone:)
