I visited with my family at about 8pm on the 2nd September. First impressions were good. Nice clean and modern decor very warm and well presented. There was only one waitor serving, but he was very inviting and well manored. Drinks order was taken nice and quick, though the cocktail I ordered did take a while longer than the beers, though I do understand that they take a lot more time to serve. There was a lot of choice on the menu and very reasonable prices. I found a dish which I had never seen advertised at an Indian before. Our starters came fairly quickly, our family always makes a selection so we can try everything. The prawn purie was my favourite out of the 4 chosen. The lamb samosa and the onion bahji, though nice were slightly bland and could have done with a bit more flavouring, the chicken massi (forgotten the exact name) which was chicken with a cream and cheese sauce was very nice but nothing special.
The main dishes were nice. I chose the new found dish which had lychees in it, which I love, I had that with tandorri chicken and that dish was only £6.50 ish which I believe was great value. My Dad and Brother had the tandorri mixed grills, they said everything was lovely but they have had better, ones slightly larger and with more flavour. My mum had a specials dish which was £3 more than mine but not much different, it was a honey cream sauce that she had with lamb (which is going to be more expensive than chicken anyway).
Very nicely, the waitor allowed us to request potato naan which wasnt on the menu but which the chef was happy to make for us which is brilliant because we love it. The overall meal was lovely. Nothing to fault really but also nothing to really rave about. Thats why ive called it a nice meal (even though nice is such an annoying word to use). Mum as she does whinned about portion sizes because she only got 5 chucks of lamb (she likes to take leftovers home) but as I explained, theres no point really in having too much, as long as you're full at the end. And I never normally finish those huge portions that can sometimes be served elsewhere. Although it would have been a bit of a joke if we had both gotten any less than 5 chunks of meat for £7-£9 a dish.
Overall, a nice experience. I think the poor waitor would have coped better (even though with only 8 people in) if someone else was helping. A nice Indian but nothing really that amazing that it sets it apart from others.
