“Good curry no complaints”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We went on recommendation from a couple of friends and enjoyed the meal. Unlike some curry houses there's an excellent choice of unusual curries not just a boring same old menu look. Both had chefs specials which were excellent. Chap on the next table had chicken on the bone, which looked amazing. Good price and excellent friendly and genuinely helpful service. We'll be going back

“Great”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Visited again after a long break and didn't regret it - food was excellent and refurb has improved the ambience. Friendly but not in your face staff are welcoming and show genuine care in who you are and your satisfaction. Been back again since and was impressed by the consistency. Trying a take away tonight with great expectations!

“One of the Best Indian Meals........”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Great food, great service - wife said it was one of the best Indians she had eaten.

This will become our new favourite and saves a trip into Rusholme in the future.

Just a pity they don't deliver.

Highly recommended!
