Restaurant details
Reviewed November 20, 2011

Used to be a regular haunt in years gone by, but standards have slipped. Sunday lunchtime, and this is one of the few open in Leicester. Went for Prawn Puri starter, which must have been the mistake. Prawns suspiciously overcooked, and overly fishy. Onto to chicken jalfrezi, which was not good. Listless and oily with overcooked and possibly reheated pilau rice and burned naan. Drove home feeling I had not eaten well. Violently ill in the evening and overnight. I am an great lover of Indian food but, under abolutely no circumstances will I ever visit this restaurant again.

A friendly welcome with helpful advise concerning compatibility of dishes. The quality and taste of the food results in many repeat visits. I know that Leicester is blessed with restaurants that give you happy eating experiences but this is one of the best. Highly recommended. Clean and well appointed.
