“Great food and attentive service”
Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

We had the tandoori chicken and a lamb curry along with a veg and appetizer. All dishes were superb not too hot but wonderfully flavorful. Food did not arrive quickly but was worth the wait. Server was very helpful in selecting our meal, very knowledgable and friendly.

“Didn't meet expectations”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Staff pleasant, but service slow. Dishes sounded better than tasted, very monotone, all sauces very similar - generally dissatisfied.

“Late, dry, luke warm, medium not hot as advertised...V poor!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We ordered takeaway from here on Saturday night. We were told it would take and 45 mins but it took and hour and a half. It was Saturday night, so whilst we were a bit frustrated, we would certainly have forgiven them had it been a good curry... We were starving!
Unfortunately when it came it wasn't particularly hot, the nan breads were very soggy and one of our friends who'd ordered onion bhaji was disappointed to find then squashed, dry and cold... not good! Her chicken tikka wasn't hot either, was dry and came without any salad (unusual in her experience). My friend I ordered a dish advertised as hot, but we both agreed it was medium at best... not what we ordered. The curry itself was also quite bland.
On the plus side my girlfriend quite enjoyed her vegetable dishes, but given we have plenty of other great Indian restaurants close by we certainly won't be returning.
Can't believe it's so high on trip advisor!!! Choose somewhere else!

“Disappointing take away”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

So sorry to say we waited to treat ourselves to a take away from here when we had friends visiting and we waited over twice as long advised for food having had to call twice to find out where it was and being told it was on its way, and getting cold, pretty bland food with bits of the order missing. One of our friends paid £8 for a soggy bhajai and some dry chunks of tikka chicken and a Keenma baan with no filling, which prompted us to ring and complain, a refund was refused but we were offered money off on another visit, we've no reason to return and our friends don't live in Bristol so we were left paying a pretty penny for a cold, unpleasant meal and two children up way over their bedtime. Such a shame when we have guests, it was so bad we'll be apologising to them all weekend.
