I can't really add very much to the previous reviews but can confirm they are all very accurate - you will either love this plate or hate it! Initial impressions were not good, going up a dingy staircase into a restaurant which hasn't been redecorated for at least 50 years, with grotty chairs and formica-topped tables. However the serving staff were all very sweet, and the menu, though quite limited for an Indian restaurant, was certainly very reasonably priced. We had Chicken Bhuna, Lamb and Mushroom Curry, Vegetable Curry, rice and Naan Breads. The food came quickly and was really quite lovely, with a real home-cooked feel, and came in generous quantities. The atmosphere was lively with a steady stream of diners, which I would guess features very little passing trade but lots of regulars who clearly love the place. Being able to bring your own alcohol with no corkage fee is also bonus. All in unique and very enjoyable dining experience.
Afterwards we went downstairs for a drink in the bar, which was a similarly unique experience. Run-down but clean, with basic tables and chairs, lots of vintage Indian pictures on the walls, and very reasonable prices, it too had the feel of a 1940's/50's Indian club, and rounded off the evening nicely.
