“Great food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Had a lovely meal with three friends. Great service and fantastic food.
The piripiri chicken was fab.
Not too expensive either.
Will definately go again and again.
Thanks GOB

“Excellent food”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Have been here many times in the past but not recently since a change in management and some adverse reports. Needn't have worried the reception was good and the menu extensive. All of the food was excellent - all six of us were very pleased with their individual choices. There was not a crumb left!!!
The food here has always been a little bland,but flavoursome, however the kitchen will respond to any requests for your own tastes.
Seemed a little quiet in atmosphere, though it was a Tuesday. needs to recover it's previous reputation!! Just visit and you will be happy.
No problems with the food or service - will definitely return.

“We will be back!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

After driving past this place many times we decided to take the plunge and purchased a voucher when it became available on deal monster. I am so glad we did, both me and my husband have agreed that we will return again. The restaurant was busier than I expected for a Tuesday evening. I can imagine that the atmosphere on a weekend is great. The service was very attentive, we took our 4 year old son with us and they were very accomodating. I enjoy a curry and can say that this is the best I have tasted in a long time-even my 4 year old agreed who happily tucked into his warm crunchy poppadoms and tasty korma. I do think good curry houses are hard to come by so we will sticking with this one especially as it offered great value for money too!

Great range of food, excellent service, really good value and they made a fuss of our little girl (which she loved). Half portions available for children.
