“Excellent Takeaway”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Excellent takeaway. I have been using this restaurant for around 10 years, both for takeaways and eating in, and I think this is the best Indian restarant around. I've never had a bad meal from this restaurant.

“Greasy, tasteless”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Picked up a takeaway last week from this highly rated restaurant. We were very disappointed by both the currys which had a thick layer of grease over the top and tasted much the same as each other even though one was supposedly much hotter than the other. Bleugh. Also very annoying to get home and find the rice was missing so had to make do without. Would never recommend.

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I'd been here several times before, so was looking forward to the usual great meal. However, although one of the waiters was very friendly, the service in general was quite poor. We were given popodums to start - there were three of us and only two popodums, whcih seemed strange. The dish I ordered was listed as 'fairly hot', but, although it was tasty, there was not much heat to it at all. Mild or, at a stretch, medium, I would have said, until you actually chewed on a chilli. The lamb dish ordered by my friend came as chicken. The mistake was rectified, but that meant either one person eating and the other waiting or letting rice and naan get cold.
When we had finished the main course, we were given menus for puddings and coffee, but nobody came to see if we wanted anything, so we decided against, asked for and paid the bill and left. Unusually, there wasn't anybody to say goodbye to - nobody seemed to notice us leaving.
After so many good meals here, this really was disappointing. We shall give them one more try, but if it's no better that time, we may well decide it's time to move on!
