“Great Meal”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We, a group of 4 people visited at 5 o'clock on a Saturday evening, the service , food and price were very good. My Madras meal was pleasantly hotter than I normally have but it wasn't a problem. The staff were very helpful.

Great food with a good menu to choose from. Lively atmosphere with brilliant service. Can also recommend the take away service.

“Good food poor service”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

On arrival we hadn't booked a table but only waited a short time while one was made ready . Once seated poppadoms arrived but was very quickly asked if we were ready to order in abrupt manner when we hadn't even opened the menu. Before our mains the waiter came to prepare table and simply threw the cutlery onto the table and left without bothering to set our places. We had finished our drinks and although many waiters looked at our table none asked if we would like more, once mains arrived we asked for drinks but nothing ever came although they were added to the bill. The waiter throughout our experience was uncooperative , uncaring and poorly mannered / disinterested. The staff do not understand basic customer care.
I cannot fault the food but the service would make me consider ever going back which is a real shame.

Kind regards

“Average Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

The pappadoms were fresh and crispy.

The sheek kebabs were somewhat undercooked and lacked any flavour or spices.

The Chicken Madras and Pilau Rice were delicious.

In summary we'd go again but give the starters a miss

“A very nice meal but staff a little wanting!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Our meal was lovely - couldn't fault it but the staff could have been friendlier. That said if we were in the area again we'd probably go back for the food as we weren't disappointed.
