“Bizarre to start but meal generally good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Didn't start well when I asked for spicy papadoms and the very friendly and polite waitress came back and apologized because apparently they take much longer than plain to prepare and they were quite busy ! Absolute tosh ! Place wasn't even half full in any case. Regardless, I settled for plain, disappointed with the pickle/dips as only mint sauce, runny mango chutney and chopped onions. The Chicken Madras was however good in fairness. Only do bottled beer which as in most Indian restaurants is a bit pricey compared to draught. I wouldn't make a special trip to try again but would if close by as I was on this occasion.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is not modern and needs a lot of interior and exterior decor updated. The waiter was very friendly and attentive the service was efficient and the waiter and waitress were both very polite. the food was good and we did not wait long for the food to arrive. All in all I would go there again.

“Surprisingly good Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

We called in for a meal on a Friday evening after reading a review of the establishment in a local newspaper. The restaurant was empty apart from ourselves and a couple having a meal.
The service was excellent, we were shown to a table next to the radiator as it was a cold evening.
Started off will the usual popadoms , and then ordered various madras and balti curries.
After our starter the host brought us a selection of complimentary starters (never had this in an Indian restaurant before).
After the starters we moved to the curry, of which we were all very impressed.
Good selection of beers at very reasonable restaurant prices.
All in all the meal was very good value for money and the service was of high quality. I will certainly call again if needing a curry in Chester.
