“Very nice curry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Third or fourth visit here and as always been good. This time arrived Thursday evening without a reservation and had no problem finding a table. The staff were helpful and polite. The food was excellent from the poppodums and pickle tray, onion bhaji and chicken Tikka starters and chicken jalfrezi, chicken madras mains courses. Not the cheapest but i don't mind paying for quality. Would definitely return.

“Yummy curry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Arrived without a reservation and had to wait about half an hour for a table, which wasn't too bad as they were quite busy.

We enjoyed the Set Meal Deal for 2 and it was very very tasty! Ample food and good portion sizes. Had to skip the last course as we were so full. The curry was some of the best we've had.

Staff were very polite. They were almost trying too hard to please the customers and seemed a bit rushed off their feet.

“don't bother to book”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

we have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions but over the past two or three visits the standard of service has slipped dramatically. we always book a table for 4/6 of us, usually on a Friday or Saturday and now consider it to be a waste of time because they appear to keep booking in but not stopping when they are full and don't save a table for you anyway, so when you arrive you are kept waiting, this visit people were queuing out into the street (some had booked others hadn't) we had had this happen to us before so this weekend we just walked out without eating. We will not be going again. Shame because the food we have eaten there is very nice

“here's your hat what's your hurry...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Booked table for 19:30 stood waiting for 20mins to be seated, starters arrived and looked lost on the plate! no sooner finished and main meal was brought out, food was average.
Felt very rushed as it was busy, One waiter was assisting a gentleman on with his coat while resetting their table! we got our bill and as we were paying our table was being cleared and reset.
No relaxed atmosphere to enjoy meal far too rushed, will not be returning.

“Popular place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

This place was very busy which is always a good sign. It was a bit chaotic but the food was really good. The staff were pleasant but we weren't served by the same person twice, not a problem as it's obviously a busy place. Would recommend.
