Similar food to the city centre favourite's such as Asha's and Pushkar's but for a fraction of the price!

For veggies the veggie chicken tikka is a must try - scarily realistic!

Great atmosphere and service!

We visited early on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was full of groups of people-there seemed to be at least two birthday parties underway. Despite the number of customers, the food came out quickly and was excellent. The mixed tandoori starter was generous and good value and all the components fresh and delicately spiced. The Lamb Tawa was a huge portion, enough for two, and as good or better than anything I've eaten elsewhere. The chicken main course was also very tasty and generous. The only let downs were the pilau rice which tasted bland and the waiter forgetting to bring me a beer that I ordered. The restaurant was busy and quite noisy and there were children running around so it might not be ideal early evening for a relaxing dinner for couples but looks good for groups of friends to get together.

Décor was plush. The food outstanding. Saying that even the chutneys for the Poppadum's were Hot, not to my taste, even the mint and onion chutneys were hot - never had them that hot before - and we eat Indian Cuisine often. Overall a great meal though and the Staff were wonderful.
