“Used to be good, now gone downhill”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

This used to be a local favourite, I recently had the jalfrezi and a chef's special and was severely disappointed. The food had some taste, mainly sweet and very spicy, however it lacked any depth of flavour. Portions were small (mainly sauce). What a shame, this used to be one of the few good Indian restaurants in Kensal Rise.

“Avoid at all costs”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The service was truly terrible. The staff are so condescending and arrogant it turned what should have been a pleasant evening into a real struggle. The food was mediocre but given that there are 2 other indian restaurants very near by with far more attentive and pleasant staff I would use these in future.

“Top Indian !”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Being quite novice in indian we got this address from trip advisor (2011 sticker on the door) and what a surprise !
Although not always listening, the server was very kind, good advise and help finding your way around in the menu (choosing for the children, etc)
Prices are reasonable (£75 for 3adults & 2children, food and drinks included)
If we had to pick one downside to the restaurant, the desserts, we would have hoped to find something more INDIAN (but maybe ice-cream in plastic cups is just that :))
We recommend this restaurant and do reserve, the place is quickly full !

“Onion, onion, onion everywhere”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

Every dish tasted the same, the same soupy tomato based sauce overloaded with that cheap additive, onions. I'd heard from a friend how great this restaurant used to be, but now they have a new chef who sadly is ruining what used to be an excellent restaurant. The service was very good and the staff were friendly, but that is all that this restaurant has going for it now.
