I've been going to this place for years to eat in and for takeaways and having also tried the best of the rest in Northampton it defo wins hands down. The only negative is the restaurant itself- very small, close tables, and a feeling of wanting to turn tables quickly but the food is fantastic. The jalfrazi is the best I've ever had as is the vindaloo. The sides are also great and the waiters are always on hand. If this place was in larger plusher surroundings it would be THE Indian restaurant in town for a night out with friends but then you probably wouldn't get the great value for money. I love the food here and every time I'm taken somewhere else it never compares to the great taste u get here.

Small, excellent value, friendly service, lovely food. I wanted a starter that wasn't on the menu and thought there was no harm in asking and they made it for me.

We've gone twice in our visit to Northampton and Lincoln.
First time it was on a Thursday and it was pretty empty. They served us so quickly and we were so impressed with the massive portions we had. If you don't enjoy spicy things and you tend to have mild food, please have the chicken passanda. Best Indian dish ever tasted! The staff was very nice and always making sure everything was alright.
We went again on a Friday and it was packed! We didn't have a reservation but even that we didn't have to wait at all and they got us a table as quick as a flash.
We were two and we were full just with with a meat dish, a rice dish and a naan. The size of the food is amazing and for such a good money value!
