“Good but not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We went as two couples in our late fourties on a busy Saturday night. The service was smart and quick and the table and facilities nice and clean, as was the Gents toilets. The food was as we expected, very tasty and spiced as described in the menu with no hot surprises. We all ordered mushroom pilau rice with our mains and I found it a little bland, missing something to make it worth the £2.50 price tag. The meals seem more expensive than when we previously visited and I'm not sure if it represents good value for money. We did manage to blag a brandy for my mate and me when we were settling the bill though.

Overall, good food and service but a little pricey.

“Proper curry in morecambe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Advise pre booking as it is very busy at weekends. Although the cuisine is excellent as soon as the last mouthful was off the plate the waiters cleared the table ready for the next course. After our meal we ordered coffees etc. But were asked to drink them in the lounge/ waiting area. Next time I go I shall leave a little on the plate and have a break between courses. All in all though very good atmosphere clean and tasty.

“We love it....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Having now become regulars...we 're still impressed. Whatever day or time you always get a lovely welcome and attentive staff. We've now been for both 2012 and 2013 New Years and thoroughly enjoyed them both. We had another lovely evening last month and are even getting a bit more adventurous with our food, there is just so much lovely food to choose from. The atmosphere is always good and you wont be disappointed. The take aways are fab too!
