“Best Indian food for miles around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Good food in magnificent surroundings (a converted former church), and a warm welcome from long-serving staff. Desai prawns and saag ghosht are personla favourites. If you like Indian vegetarian food, the off-shoot an Lancaster University's campus is even better - no set menu but alwayus two or three well-spiced vegie dishes (eg spinach paneer, Bombay potato, chick peas) and a couple fo chicken or lamb dishes for the non-vegetarians. They also serve pizza, kebabs, burgers, sandwiches, which I can take or leave, and it's primarily a student diner than an atmospheric restaurant.

“Delicious”

Great food, I had Lamb Rogan Josh: medium strength curry cooked with tomatos and fresh herbs and spices with some naan bread. Very nice and friendly staff. Feels like at home. Definately worth to go!

“Dreadful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Sorry I hate being negative, but .... The place was recommended by a friend as we don't really know Lancaster. They did tell us that they didn't serve alcohol but did say that you could take your own. Not true, so if you go don't take any. Ok on with the comments, the place was freezing cold, my wife wouldn't even take her scarf off! We were served some popadom s, which tasted like the tesco ones that you microwave, the chutney was also dreadful. Sorry cant really say any more as we were so cold we paid for the bits we had and left. I'm sure it's not always like that but I wouldn't go again. The other thing I would say is that it was also very quiet, which wasn't a good sign for a Friday night.
