“Excellent curries.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We were well looked after by Pepe who gave good advice on the menu and what to order. The curries are really excellent, full of flavour and spice. What we could not eat was packed for us to bring home. Next time we will have take away to avoid the service charge!

“Delicious, thanks Pepe!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We chose this restaurant on the basis of tripadvisor reviews (and so, I think, had a lot of others as we kept hearing the word 'tripadvisor' being murmoured around the room!). It was busy but the manager, Pepe, spent time with each table, having a general chat and offering suggestions for starters, mains etc. We got a chicken tandoori massala and a makhani, which I had never tried, but both were really rich and delicious. Pepe suggested we take home what we couldn't eat for another day, which we did (tea is sorted for tonight!). Excellent place and service, we'll be back.

“Perfectly cooked, delicious”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. It's a small restaurant and doesn't stand out as the newest or brightest on the street but inside it was a gem. The owner was very helpful, directing us to his specialities, we had the Dosa for starter which was perfectly cooked and better than one I'd had in India. The unique point about all the food is that it's not greasy in the slightest and you leave feeling full but not bloated - a completely new experience from an Indian restaurant. The Bombay chicken was simply delightful and reminded me of my Matajee's - it's also one of her best dishes. Prices were very reasonable and even though we were told service was included it was so fantastic I left a tip because I really enjoyed it. We'll definitely be back and bring our friends.
