“Surprised after seeing other reviews!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

My husband and I went there this weekend, we both were gobsmacked by the food. It was very nice food. We too chose the menu and eventhough it wasn't cheap it definitely was worth it. When we asked for some yogurt (to reduce the spice of the food) it even was free of charge.

The food was rather spicy, but we asked for spicy, so no complaints there. And we finished everything!

We will definitely go there again and recommand it to others.

If you are planning on going there and you read the reviews, maybe you should keep in mind the there might be cultural differences in appreciating the food. While reading the reviews I saw that people liking/not liking it usually come from the same country.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We went to this restaurant because the Indian we saw the previous night which was full, was closed. We were not disappointed, thou the madras I had did not taste like a madras, I am getting used to what I had in England not tasting the same abroad, but it was tasty. The Tikka Masala that my partner had was delicious, as were the starters.
The King Fisher beer was not cold and a bit flat as I read in a previous review, but the second one was better, maybe not many people drink the King Fisher and they put one in the fridge.
The restaurant was busy and there was a lot of Indian people eating in the restaurant, which is a good sign.

“Fine but not very good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Ii walked in from the street hoping it was good. Nice menu and choice. Anyway I had a mixed main course, which I never do, and a beer. Dont know what the beer was like - the food was too tasty.
The mixed courses were a tandoori leg, a korma, a curry, a veggy coure and lentil mix, rice, yoghurt and nan.
The tandoori had no kick, nor the lentils but the rest was ok. Could have used more rice.

Service very good and if you are fresh in Indian or avoid hot curries its great. For me - a lover of Indian cuisine. Sorry - ok - no more.

“Standard choice of Indian cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Passing by, we saw some Indians eating in the restaurant. Always a good sign we thought. And so it was. It has the typical feel of a small Indian restaurant, everything was clean and the food was good. Staff was taking care of us and we left the restaurant within an hour. All fine. Except the Kingfisher Beer which was not cold enough and had lost its spirit when served.

“Terrible food high price”

This reastaurant very far from the real Indian restaurant. I ate mixed main dishes and all of them were terrible. And the price is quite hight if you compare the restaurant in that range.
