Bad bad bad, the self service only makes the interaction with the rude uninterested staff less frequent.
Food is bland and of poor quality, I'll be still chewing in the lamb next Easter.
Avoid at all costs, god knows what's comIng to me in the morning after this lot...

There isn't LOADS of choice but what's there is decent and it fills a hole. It's not amazing, but for the price you'd be silly to expect it really. The only thing I'd change would be to have one hotter curry, as the ones on offer wern't spicy at all. I guess they're catering for the masses though and quite a lot of brits have a phobia of spicy food!

Whoever is moaning about the restaurant not doing enough vegetarian options needs to be quiet - the same people operate a purely vegerarian indian buffet around the corner! This is the meat eaters one... if you want veg then go up the road ;).

So yeah, don't expect anything amazing, but for a few quid it's a decent pig out spot.

They have a la carte menu and buffet. We chose the buffet. That day there was a salad buffet (nothing nice there) on the side and a main buffet with rice (very aromathic), naan bread (average), pappadum (very good ones), tandori chicken (average, lacked of spices and not warm enough), lamb curry (excellent), chickern curry (amazing must have cooked for many hours: the meat was so tender and tasy...), vegetables curry (ok), plus a lentil soup and fried veggies I didn't taste.
Good value for money, the place is tiny, not nicely decorated and on a side street.

This is the worst ever restaurant I have ever been in my life, the food taste was awe full and can easily say that it was there for three to four days. I advice vegetarians strongly not to visit this restaurant as they have only one option for vegans and you will definitely be disappointed. It's an absolute day-light robbery. Doesn't matter how you felt about the taste, they are only interested in you paying the food bill. I have been to their website and their food quality has been awarded as 5 star which is an absolute lie and trying to cheat the customers.

Its a buffet, so it's not fine dining, but for what it is, it is excellent. Good food, it seems fresh to me, despite previous comments, and a reasonable selection. I go here quite often in the venings if I am in a rush, a perfect 20 minute meal.
