“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

What a great restaurant. The restaurant itself is only small but it creates a good atmosphere. We arrived at around 7.30pm and were given a table straight away as there were a few empty. Within 10 minutes the place was packed to capacity so book early. The staff were extremely polite and friendly.

The food was brilliant!!! No long waits in between courses, all served with a smile and a conversation. The best thing about it is, it did not break the bank.

Plenty of parking within 100 yards or so.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

We currently live in Germany (where Indian food is almost non-existent!), so decided to treat ourselves to a curry whilst visiting during the Christmas season.

We had a very pleasant meal, and the food was delicious. The poppadums were light and crisp, and not at all greasy (I always think you can gauge a good Indian by the poppadums!), the naan was one of the best I have ever eaten (again, light, not overcooked and not greasy) Our meals were delicious and my chicken was very tender. I cannot vouch for whether they were genuinely Indian, but it was certainly genuinely tasty.

The service was pleasant and quick, and the restaurant was busy with a nice atmosphere.

All in all, a great meal and I would certainly recommend it.

“Fantastic new owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

My wife had good news on the day of our visit, securing a full time job, so I decided on treating her to a curry.

Kendal is well blessed in this department, and since moving to the area, a couple of years ago, we've tried them all. On our first visit here, they couldn't wait to get us out, with plates gone while still chewing.

We decided, for some reason, to try again, not realising it had changed hands.

What a contrast. Jay introduced himself to us on arrival, and was never far away throughout the meal. He explained the menu with genuine interest, and gave us as much timebas we wanted.

The food: I usually choose one of three main dishes, depending on mood. This time I chose one of their specialities instead. The portion was very generous, although not hot at all (as claimed on the menu). It was, however, delicately spiced and extremely tasty. This lack of heat would normally affect my rating in a negative way, but the customer service Jay and the staff gave far outweighed any negatives.

And Jay, I love your accent :)

“Wonderful night out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

We chose this restaurant for our team Christmas meal and, without doubt, the best such night we've ever had. Excellent food all freshly cooked to order combined with outstanding service! Would highly recommend this restaurant to local people and visitors alike.
