This is a really nice restaurant to go to for a special occasion, with great, attentive service.

We visited this restaurant as a special occasion. When making the reservation I advised them of this and was told that they would provide a complimentary brownie. The restaurant has a lovely interior, we requested a table in the conservatory area and we were given one. If possible, I would request this, as it is a lovely area with a huge tree in the middle with the branches covering the roof of the conservatory.

Food was lovely, a modern twist on Indian dishes which were beautifully presented. We were initially sceptical about how filling the dishes would be, as other people have commented about the size of the portions. However, we found the portions to be an adequate size and we big enough to satisfy your appetite. Service was extremely good, with waiters who were very attentive and quick to come over.

After our starters and main courses, the waiter brought over a complimentary cupcake with chocolate icing, on a plate which also had congratulations written on it. The cupcake was complete with a sparkler, which made the meal even better.The restaurant is quite expensive, however this is reflected in the dishes, as they do look extremely high class and tasted extremely good too. However, as you are going to a Michelin star restaurant, it's kind of expected that you will be paying more than a usual restaurant.

All in all, would definitely recommend this restaurant, especially for a special occasion. Great 1 star Michelin experience!

This restaurant is great for things like:
- it has a stylish look
- lots of staff who are attentive and friendly
- great atmosphere: happy customers who were relaxed and having a nice night out with friends and/or family
- great prices
- great choice of foods
- very interesting taps in the ladies toilets!
Some of the food was absolutely delicious. Some of it was not as good though. Either our palates weren't attuned to this version of Indian food or maybe we chose things that didn't suit our tastes

This is a really great place to go for fabulous food. The staff are really nice and very helpful. The food was fantastic and it is probably the second best indian food I have ever had (the only one better was Veeraswamy). The only thing that detracted from the experience was the number of times we were asked if everything was ok. This probably happened about 10 times with different staff members. Other than that I really can't fault it. I only wish I lived closer so that I could go again and again!

Visited today and enjoyed the great Sunday buffet which had a lovely variety of dishes to chose from and everything we tried was superb. Staff were friendly and welcoming too and happy to tell you about the different dishes. Really pleasant atmosphere also and would definitely go back.

Very good Indian restaurant, food was heavenly, excellent service and very friendly and qualified staff. We enjoyed our evening at the lovely ambiance at the atrium. Can't find any faults at all here.
Look forward to go again at our next visit!
