We attended here for another function. Although it was midweek the restaurant was busy but the service was generally prompt although they were rather tardy when we asked for bottled water. The starters of lamb kebabs were very good but we felt the mains were disappointing but the lamb karai was highly praised.

There seems to be rather a high staff turnover since we last attended and that might have reflected on the consistency of the food and service.

Wonderful,fresh Indian food. The Handi Gosht Laziz is a wonderful dish as is the Lamb Madras. Great selection of starters and mains. We have dined in and taken out from this restaurant and the food has never been less than spot on. This is how "proper" Indian food and runs rings around shoddy takeaways on the high street.

Been many times, I had a mixed grill, murgh makhani, chips and garlic naan all delicious and definitely worth a trip. No alcohol is served so that keeps the prices low, but I would say that you would have to be incredibly hungry to spend more than £15 per head. Stay away from the peri chicken, not as good as Nandos and much better to go for the tandoori. I love having chips with my curry and the mango lassi is good as well. This place is well suited for a large group of people, for couples it doesn't have quite the right atmosphere or service.

Been here several times because I think the food is excellent. However find the service levels very disappointing when they are busy. They lack the attention to detail and can feel like they're wanting a quick turnaround.

Heard mixed reviews from people l know who've been from awful to amazing so l checked it out for myself last Sunday for lunch. We were the only diners in at that time. We ordered Chana chaat (which was edible) , chicken & vegetable samosas ( nice crisp pastry but filling could be better), Lahori ghost (nice) , murgh makhani (ok but bland) , methi chicken (ok) and naans. The naans were the best thing, fresh and hot + not too heavy. The mango lassi was also nice. Didn't try any deserts. It's good value and in a basic cafe style not restaurant style, kind of reminded of a dhaba in India with the orange fruit machine on the counter! Overall l have had far better Indian meals but to be fair most of them have been home made by family (indians) or in India & lve had far worse meals in uk Indian restaurants & so overall it's worth a try & above average for what you can get in the area
